ALGUNOS ASPECTOS SOBRE LA TEMPERATURA DE HOJAS PERTENECIENTES A PLANTAS DE LA REGIÓN XEROFÍTICA DE SANTA MARTA (COLOMBIA)

Reinhard Schnetter

Abstract


Leaf temperatures of several plant species of the xerophytic vegetation near Santa Marta (Colombia) were studied during the dry and the wet season. The leaves of species growing in a cactus thorn scrub reached very high temperatures, especially in the dry season, while leaf temperatures of plants in the area of a disappeared semi-deciduous seasonal forest were lower because of more favorable conditions of water supply and microclimate.
