Influence of leaf dry mass per area, CO2, and irradiance on mesophyll conductance in sclerophylls

Hassiotou, Foteini; Ludwig, Martha; Renton, Michael; Veneklaas, Erik J; Evans, John


Leaf photosynthesis (A) is limited by mesophyll conductance (gm), which is influenced by both leaf structure and the environment. Previous studies have indicated that the upper bound for gm declines as leaf dry mass per area (LMA, an indicator of leaf structure) increases, extrapolating to zero at a LMA of about 240 g m-2. No data exist on gm and its response to the environment for species with LMA values higher than 220 g m-2. In this study, laboratory measurements of leaf gas exchange and in...[Show more]
