Resistances along the CO2 diffusion pathway inside leaves

Evans, John; Kaldenhoff, Ralf; Genty, Bernard; Terashima, Ichiro

Description

CO2 faces a series of resistances while diffusing between the substomatal cavities and the sites of carboxylation within chloroplasts. The absence of techniques to measure the resistance of individual steps makes it difficult to define their relative importance. Resistance to diffusion through intercellular airspace differs between leaves, but is usually of minor importance. Leaves with high photosynthetic capacity per unit leaf area reduce mesophyll resistance by increasing the surface area of...[Show more]
