Single cell C 4 photosynthesis in aquatic and terrestrial plants: A gas exchange perspective

von Caemmerer, Susanne; Edwards, Gerald; Koteyeva, Nuria K; Cousins, Asaph B

Description

Another "green revolution" is needed for crop yields to meet the demands for food and this has provided a new focus on photosynthesis research. Many important crops have the C3 photosynthetic pathway and a range of options for enhancing leaf photosynthesis in C3 species are being tested. George Bowes' pioneering research elucidated the inducible single cell C4 photosynthetic mechanism of aquatic plants such as Hydrilla verticillata. Here we review the efficacy of single cell C4 photosynthesis...[Show more]
