Description: The data included in this data package are a demonstration of an inverse relationship in the early successional species Vismia guianensis in the central Amazon between stomatal conductance (gs) and leaf temperature, while net photosynthesis (Pn) showed an optimum value of 32.6 ± 0.4°C. In contrast to Pn, photosynthetic electron transport rates (ETR) and the QA oxidation state (qL) increased linearly with leaf temperature. Leaf isoprene emissions, a primary product of photosynthesis and strongly linked to plant high temperature stress tolerance, showed strong linear correlations with ETR (ƿ = 0.98) and qL (ƿ = 0.99). Furthermore, inhibition of isoprenoid biosynthesis repressed Pn at high temperatures through a mechanism that was independent of stomatal closure. Data will be used in the publication, "Stimulation of isoprene emissions and electron transport rates as a key mechanism of thermal tolerance in the tropical species Vismia guianensis."
