As an AI language model, I am currently unable to create or directly insert visual diagrams into text. However, I can try to provide descriptions to help you visualize the various profiles within the fully adjusted layer of plant communities. 1. Temperature Profile: In a fully adjusted layer of plant communities, the temperature profile is typically determined by the height within the canopy. There are cooler temperatures at the top of the canopy, where plants experience higher wind speeds and are more exposed to the environment. As we move downwards in the canopy, the temperature gradually increases, reaching a peak near the bottom, where the wind speed is lower, and the soil absorbs and emits heat. 2. Wind Profile: The wind profile generally follows a logarithmic pattern within a plant community. Wind speeds are much faster at the top of the canopy layer, and as we descend, the wind speeds are reduced. The decrease in wind speed occurs because plant structures and leaves disrupt the air movement as we go deeper into the canopy. At the ground level, the wind speed is often the slowest. 3. Carbon Dioxide Profile: Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration varies significantly within the canopy of plant communities. The top of the canopy experiences lower CO2 concentrations due to continuous gas exchange during photosynthesis. As we move downwards in the canopy layer, CO2 concentrations typically increase as air movement is reduced and CO2 released from plant respiration and soil accumulates in the still air pockets. 4. Radiation Profile: The radiation profile also changes with the canopy height. At the top of the canopy, solar radiation is the highest as the leaves and plants receive direct sunlight. As we move down the canopy, the amount of solar radiation decreases due to shading, scattering, and reflection of light by the foliage. This results in a gradient of diminishing light levels from the top to the bottom of the canopy. 5. Humidity Profile: In a plant community, humidity is typically highest near the ground level due to increased transpiration from the soil surface and plant leaves. As you move up the canopy, humidity tends to decrease as the air and wind start to interact more with the plant leaves, often dispersing the moisture into the environment. However, humidity levels can still be relatively high in the mid-canopy region, as the canopy structure can reduce the overall air circulation. Once again, I apologize for not being able to provide diagrams. If you need more information or further clarifications, please let me know.
