Stable isotope analysis

Carbon and oxygen isotope ratio in CO2; hydrogen and oxygen isotope ratio in H2O of atmosphere in various heights; and; carbon and oxygen isotope ratio in CO2 of sampling air in leaf-chamber were observed using a laser spectrometer. Simultaneously, photosynthesis and transpiration rates were measured by a gas Analyzer.
