Carbon and water economy of Australian NAD-ME and NADP-ME C4 grasses
C4 grasses are grouped into three biochemical subtypes, NAD malic enzyme (NAD-ME), NADP malic enzyme (NADP-ME) and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PCK), possessing characteristic leaf anatomy, biochemistry and physiology. This study investigates the physiological implications of these differences by comparing growth, water use efficiency (WUE, dry matter gain per unit water transpired) and gas exchange characteristics of NAD-ME and NADP-ME C4 grasses belonging to three taxonomic groups (main...[Show more]
