Understanding biological temperature responses is crucial to predicting global carbon fluxes. The current approach to modeling photosynthetic temperature responses in large scale modeling efforts uses a modified Arrhenius equation. We rederived the modified Arrhenius equation from the source publication and uncovered a missing term that was dropped between 1942 and 2002. We compare fitted temperature response parameters between the new and old derivation of the modified Arrhenius equation. Wedoi:10.1101/2020.01.27.921973 fatcat:qe3brz6q6vb3zh6ihyc3las5ii
