Light and CO2 do not affect the mesophyll conductance to CO2 diffusion in wheat leaves

Tazoe, Youshi; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Badger, Murray; Evans, John


In C3 plants, diffusion of CO2 into leaves is restricted by stomata and subsequently by the intercellular airspaces and liquid phase into chloroplasts. While considerable information exists on the effect of environmental conditions on stomatal conductance (gs), little is known on whether the mesophyll conductance to CO2 diffusion (gm) changes with respect to photon flux density (PFD) and CO2 partial pressure (pCO2). In this study, the effects of PFD and/or pCO2 on gm were examined in wheat...[Show more]
