The effect of exogenous abscisic acid on stomatal development, stomatal mechanics, and leaf exchange gas in Tradescantia virginia

Franks, Peter Joseph; Farquhar, Graham


Gas exchange parameters and stomatal physical properties were measured in Tradescantia virginiana plants grown under well-watered conditions and treated daily with either distilled water (control) or 3.0 mM abscisic acid (ABA). Photosynthetic capacity (CO2 assimilation rate for any given leaf intercellular CO2 concentration [ci]) and relative stomatal sensitivity to leaf-to-air vapor-pressure difference were unaffected by the ABA treatment. However, at an ambient CO2 concentration (ca) of 350...[Show more]
