Growth of the C 4 dicot Flaveria bidentis: photosynthetic acclimation to low light through shifts in leaf anatomy and biochemistry

Pengelly, Jasper; Sirault, Xavier R.R; Tazoe, Youshi; Evans, John; Furbank, Robert Thomas; von Caemmerer, Susanne


In C4 plants, acclimation to growth at low irradiance by means of anatomical and biochemical changes to leaf tissue is considered to be limited by the need for a close interaction and coordination between bundle sheath and mesophyll cells. Here differences in relative growth rate (RGR), gas exchange, carbon isotope discrimination, photosynthetic enzyme activity, and leaf anatomy in the C4 dicot Flaveria bidentis grown at a low (LI; 150μmol quanta m2 s-1) and medium (MI; 500μmol quanta m 2 s-1)...[Show more]
