The occurrence of Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), as judged from δ13C values, was investigated in epiphytes and some related plant species at a series of sites covering the approximate altitudinal range of epiphytes in Papua New Guinea. Comprehensive collections were made at each site and the occurrence of water storage tissue and blade thickness was(More)
A total of 22 grass species were examined from 5 sites spanning the altitudinal range 1550–4350 m.a.s.l. The presence of the C3 or C4 photosynthetic pathway was determined from δ13C values and chilling tolerance was assessed on the basis of electrolyte leakage from leaf slices incubated on melting ice. Most of the grasses studied at the lower altitude sites(More)
