Profiles of 14C fixation through spinach leaves in relation to light absorption and photosynthetic capacity

Evans, John; Vogelmann, Thomas C


The profile of photosynthetic rate with depth through a leaf depends on the profiles of light absorption and photosynthetic capacity. Using a combination of several techniques, a comprehensive description of spinach leaves has been obtained. Profiles of CO2 fixation were obtained by exposing leaves to 14CO2 for 10 s under blue or green light before freeze clamping and paradermal sectioning. Profiles of light absorption were measured on adjacent parts of the leaf by quantifying chlorophyll...[Show more]
