Carbon Isotope Discrimination and Photosynthesis
We discuss the physical and enzymatic bases of carbone isotope discrimination during photosynthesis, noting how knowledge of discrimination can be used to provide additional insight intoExpand
A biochemical model of photosynthetic CO2 assimilation in leaves of C3 species
Various aspects of the biochemistry of photosynthetic carbon assimilation in C3 plants are integrated into a form compatible with studies of gas exchange in leaves. These aspects include the kineticExpand
On the Relationship Between Carbon Isotope Discrimination and the Intercellular Carbon Dioxide Concentration in Leaves
Theory is developed to explain the carbon isotopic composition of plants. It is shown how diffusion of gaseous COz can significantly affect carbon isotopic discrimination. The effects onExpand
Isotopic Composition of Plant Carbon Correlates With Water-Use Efficiency of Wheat Genotypes
Variation in carbon-isotope composition among and between wheat genotypes was correlated with variation in water-use efficiency in separate pot experiments conducted in spring-summer and in winter.Expand
The Carbon Cycle and Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Contributing Authors D. Archer, M.R. Ashmore, O. Aumont, D. Baker, M. Battle, M. Bender, L.P. Bopp, P. Bousquet, K. Caldeira, P. Ciais, P.M. Cox, W. Cramer, F. Dentener, I.G. Enting, C.B. Field, P.Expand
Stomatal conductance and photosynthesis
This research is part of an effort that the ICT (Institute of Tropical Cultivation) has been doing for several years tending to develop superior genotypes of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.). That is whyExpand
Breeding for high water-use efficiency.
There is a pressing need to improve the water-use efficiency of rain-fed and irrigated crop production. Breeding crop varieties with higher water-use efficiency is seen as providing part of theExpand
Some relationships between the biochemistry of photosynthesis and the gas exchange of leaves
A series of experiments is presented investigating short term and long term changes of the nature of the response of rate of CO2 assimilation to intercellular p(CO2). The relationships between CO2Expand
Simple scaling of photosynthesis from leaves to canopies without the errors of big‐leaf models
In big-leaf models of canopy photosynthesis, the Rubisco activity per unit ground area is taken as the sum of activities per unit leaf area within the canopy, and electron transport capacity isExpand
Fitting photosynthetic carbon dioxide response curves for C(3) leaves.
Photosynthetic responses to carbon dioxide concentration can provide data on a number of important parameters related to leaf physiology. Methods for fitting a model to such data are brieflyExpand
