High thermal acclimation potential of both photosynthesis and respiration in two lowland Plantago species in contrast to an alpine congeneric

Atkin, Owen; Scheurwater, I; Pons, T L


Thermal acclimation of photosynthesis and respiration can enable plants to maintain near constant rates of net CO2 exchange, despite experiencing sustained changes in daily average temperature. In this study, we investigated whether the degree of acclimation of photosynthesis and respiration of mature leaves differs among three congeneric Plantago species from contrasting habitats [two fast-growing lowland species (Plantago major and P. lanceolata), and one slow-growing alpine species (P....[Show more]
