    We examined the relationships between stem CO2 efflux (Es), diameter

    growth, and nonstructural carbohydrate concentration in loblolly pine trees. Carbohydrate

    supply was altered via stem girdling during rapid stem growth in the

    spring and after growth had ceased in the autumn. We hypothesized that substrate

    type and availability control the seasonal variation and temperature sensitivity of
