                         highest biodiversity on Earth and a high proportion of endemic 
                         species. However, there have been only a few and limited 
                         descriptions of carbon budgets in tropical montane forest regions. 
                         Aims: We present the first comprehensive data on the production, 
                         allocation and cycling of carbon for two high elevation (ca. 3000 
                         m) tropical montane cloud forest plots in the Kos˝ipata Valley, 
                         Peruvian Andes. Methods: We measured the main components and 
                         seasonal variation of net primary productivity (NPP), autotrophic 
                         (R a) and heterotrophic (R h) respiration to estimate gross 
                         primary productivity (GPP) and carbon use efficiency (CUE) in two 
                         1-ha plots. Results: NPP for the two plots was estimated to be 
                         7.05 ▒ 0.39 and 8.04 ▒ 0.47 Mg C ha\−1 year\−1, GPP 
                         to be 22.33 ▒ 2.23 and 26.82 ▒ 2.97 Mg C ha\−1 
                         year\−1 and CUE was 0.32 ▒ 0.04 and 0.30 ▒ 0.04. 
                         Conclusions: We found strong seasonality in NPP and moderate 
                         seasonality of R a, suggesting that forest NPP is driven by 
                         changes in photosynthesis and highlighting the importance of 
                         variation in solar radiation. Our findings imply that trees invest 
                         more in biomass production in the cooler season with lower solar 
                         radiation and more in maintenance during the warmer and high solar 
                         radiation period.",
