Temperature response of mesophyll conductance in cultivated and wild Oryza species with contrasting mesophyll cell wall thickness

Scafaro, Andrew P; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Evans, John; Atwell, Brian J


A critical component of photosynthetic capacity is the conductance of CO2 from intercellular airspaces to the sites of CO2 fixation in the stroma of chloroplasts, termed mesophyll conductance (gm). Leaf anatomy has been identified as an important determinant of gm. There are few studies of the temperature response of gm and none has examined the implications of leaf anatomy. Hence, we compared a cultivar of Oryza sativa with two wild Oryza relatives endemic to the hot northern savannah of...[Show more]
