The effect of drought on plant water use efficiency of nine NAD-ME and nine NADP-ME Australian C4 grasses

Geijer, Paulina; von Caemmerer, Susanne; Conroy, Jann P


We investigated the response to drought of nine NAD-malic enzyme (NAD-ME) and nine NADP-malic enzyme (NADP-ME) C4 grasses. Species were grown from seeds in potted soil in a glasshouse. Seedlings were either watered regularly or exposed to two successive drying cycles of 8-10 d each, after which plants were harvested. Under well-watered conditions, average water use efficiency (WUE; dry mass gain per unit water transpired) was similar for NAD-ME and NADP-ME C4 grasses, and ranged between 6.0 and...[Show more]
