Leaf mesophyll diffusion conductance in 35 Australian sclerophylls covering a broad range of foliage structural and physiological variation.

Niinemets, Ulo; Wright, Ian J; Evans, John


Foliage structure, chemistry, photosynthetic potentials (Vcmax and Jmax), and mesophyll diffusion conductance (gm) were quantified for 35 broad-leaved species from four sites with contrasting rainfall and soil fertility in eastern Australia. The aim of the study was to estimate the extent to which gm and related leaf properties limited photosynthesis (A), focusing on highly sclerophyllous species typical of the 'slow-return' end of the leaf economics spectrum. Leaf dry mass per unit area (MA)...[Show more]
