Curiosity and context revisited: crassulacean acid metabolism in the Anthropocene

Osmond, C Barry; Neales, Tom; Stange, Gert


Having gained some understanding of the consequences of the CO 2-concentrating mechanisms in crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) that internalize the photosynthetic environment of the Cretaceous on a daily basis, it may be time to consider potential long-term effects of the planetary CO 2-concentrating mechanism on growth and ecology of these plants in the Anthropocene. This paper emphasizes our limited understanding of the carbohydrate economy of CAM in relation to growth processes and briefly...[Show more]
