Light and growth temperature alter carbon isotope discrimination an estimated bundle sheath leakiness in C4 grasses and dicots

Kubasek, Jiri; Setlik, Jiri; Dwyer, Simon; Santrucek, Jiri


We combined measurements of short-term (during gas exchange) and long-term (from plant dry matter) carbon isotope discrimination to estimate CO2 leakiness from bundle sheath cells in six C4 species (three grasses and three dicots) as a function of leaf insertion level, growth temperature and short-term irradiance. The two methods for determining leakiness yielded similar results (P > 0.05) for all species except Setaria macrostachya, which may be explained by the leaf of this species not being...[Show more]
