The economic challenge of leaf gas exchange
The exchange of water for carbon dioxide required for photosynthesis in the leaves of vascular plants couples the global terrestrial carbon and water cycles. It also acts as a selection pressure for the plant: on the one hand, gas exchange for photosynthesis is beneficial for survival and growth in a competitive environment, but the loss of too much water can lead to plant death. In this thesis, two aspects of leaf functioning in relation to gas exchange were investigated in terms of these...[Show more]
