Development of a photosynthesis model with an emphasis on ecological applications
SummaryPhotosynthesis was measured in leaves ofPhaseolus vulgaris and analyzed according to the set of equations outlined previously by Tenhunen et al. (1976).
Development of a photosynthesis model with an emphasis on ecological applications
TLDR
A description of photosynthesis in a single leaf is developed that separates physiological sub-processes and that is practical to apply as an ecological tool and it will be possible to determine the phenotypic plasticity of particular plants with respect to the metabolic sub- processes outlined.

LIGHT-INDUCED EFFICIENCY AND PIGMENT ALTERATIONS IN RED ALGAE
TLDR
Some pigment changes were observed, but not in the direction of "chromatic adaptation;" and the carotenoid pigments were not activated, even by blue light, but remained as photosynthetically inactive shading filters; the higher red algae (Florideae) did not show activation of chlorophyll by red or blue light.

Ethylene and Carbon Dioxide: Mediation of Hypocotyl Hook-Opening Response
TLDR
Hook opening appears to be a response in which ethylene serves as a natural growth regulator and in which carbon dioxide may be involved also as a growth regulator through its antagonism of the action of ethylene. Expand
ON THE ENERGETICS OF THE PHOTOSYNTHESES IN GREEN SULFUR BACTERIA
TLDR
The quantum efficiency of photosynthesis by the green sulfur bacterium has been determined in systems in which thiosulfate, tetrathionate, and molecular hydrogen served as electron donors, and it was found that about 10 ± 1 quanta are used for the assimilation of 1 molecule of CO2. Expand
Photosynthesis under field conditions
A model describing photosynthesis in terms of gas diffusion and enzyme kinetics
SummaryA model predicting net photosynthesis of individual plant leaves for a variety of environmental conditions has been developed. It is based on an electrical analogue describing gas diffusionExpand
PHOTOSYNTHETIC EFFICIENCY OF MARINE PLANTS
In Vol. 38, No. 1, September 20, 1954, page 14, insert between equations (3) and (4) the words "In the compensating vessel:" On the same page in equation (6) p CO 2 should read pc CO 2.
Terminal oxidases and growth in plant tissues. III. Terminal oxidation in potato tuber tissue.
TLDR
It is deduced that, after the disks have been cut, their respiration becomes mediated by a new enzyme, which is either a cytochrome system insensitive to CO and cyanide, or a flavoprotein of high oxygen affinity. Expand
