The Monteith´s model offers an attractive alternative to describe the service that regulates the carbon gains by ecosystems at regional and global scales, clearly an important question in assessing Global Change. This approach estimates net primary productivity (NPP) from photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR), the fraction of PAR absorbed...


... Both of these VIs are directly related with the fraction of photosynthetically active radiation (fAPAR) intercepted by green vegetation [13]. This relationship allows the derivation of regional maps of primary production from radiation use efficiency values [14]. Landscape functional heterogeneity has also been suggested as a significant driver of species [15] and ecosystem diversity [12], particularly in the Mediterranean Region. ...
