                         ecosystems with high biodiversity and large carbon reservoirs. To 
                         date there have been limited descriptions of the carbon cycle of 
                         TMCF. Aims: We present results on the production, allocation and 
                         cycling of carbon for two mid-elevation (15001750 m) tropical 
                         montane cloud forest plots in San Pedro, Kos˝ipata Valley, Peru. 
                         Methods: We repeatedly recorded the components of net primary 
                         productivity (NPP) using biometric measurements, and autotrophic 
                         (R a) and heterotrophic (R h) respiration, using gas exchange 
                         measurements. From these we estimated gross primary productivity 
                         (GPP) and carbon use efficiency (CUE) at the plot level. Results: 
                         The plot at 1500 m was found very productive, with our results 
                         comparable with the most productive lowland Amazonian forests. The 
                         plot at 1750 m had significantly lower productivity, possibly 
                         because of greater cloud immersion. Both plots had similar 
                         patterns of NPP allocation, a substantial seasonality in NPP 
                         components and little seasonality in Ra. Conclusions: These two 
                         plots lie within the ecotone between lower and upper montane 
                         forests, near the level of the cloud base. Climate change is 
                         likely to increase elevation of the cloud base, resulting in 
                         shifts in forest functioning. Longer-term surveillance of the 
                         carbon cycle at these sites would yield valuable insights into the 
                         response of TMCFs to a shifting cloud base.",
