Photosynthesis models are an important development for estimating gas-flux rates of plants. These models have been used to estimate fluxes from the level of the single leaf to community carbon fluxes across the globe. Questions addressed with photosynthesis models involve differences in carbon exchange among plant communities, plant community responses to climate change, and basic ecological concepts concerning resource acquisition, competition for light, and effects of stress.
