Coordination of Leaf Photosynthesis, Transpiration, and Structural Traits in Rice and Wild Relatives (Genus Oryza)1[W][OA]
High gm together with high gm/gs and a low Smes/gm ratio appear to be ideal for supporting leaf photosynthesis while preserving water; in addition, thick M cell walls may be beneficial for plant drought tolerance. Expand
Diversity in leaf anatomy, and stomatal distribution and conductance, between salt marsh and freshwater species in the C(4) genus Spartina (Poaceae).
Differences in structural-functional features of photosynthesis in Spartina species are suggested to be related to adaptations to saline environments. Expand
Physiological, anatomical and biochemical characterisation of photosynthetic types in genus Cleome (Cleomaceae).
From screening more than 230 samples of Cleomaceae species, based on a measure of the carbon isotope composition (δ13C) in leaves, it is indicated that this is an interesting family for studying the genetic basis for C4 photosynthesis and its evolution from C3 species. Expand
Structural and physiological analyses in Salsoleae (Chenopodiaceae) indicate multiple transitions among C3, intermediate, and C4 photosynthesis
In subfamily Salsoloideae (family Chenopodiaceae) most species are C4 plants having terete leaves with Salsoloid Kranz anatomy characterized by a continuous dual chlorenchyma layer of Kranz cellsExpand
Diversity in forms of C4 in the genus Cleome (Cleomaceae).
NAD-malic enzyme-type C(4) photosynthesis evolved multiple times in the family Cleomaceae, twice with atriplicoid-type anatomy in compound leaves having flat, broad leaflets in the pantropical species C. angustifolia. Expand
Revealing diversity in structural and biochemical forms of C4 photosynthesis and a C3–C4 intermediate in genus Portulaca L. (Portulacaceae)
The results indicate that multiple structural and biochemical forms of C4 photosynthesis evolved in genus Portulaca. Expand
Cell wall properties in Oryza sativa influence mesophyll CO2 conductance.
The data presented here indicate that the loss of MLG in CslF6 plants had an impact on Gm and demonstrate the importance of cell wall effective porosity and liquid path length on gm. Expand
Functional Analysis of Corn Husk Photosynthesis[W][OA]
The husk surrounding the ear of corn/maize (Zea mays) has widely spaced veins with a number of interveinal mesophyll (M) cells and has been described as operating a partial C3 photosynthetic pathway,Expand
Evolution of leaf anatomy and photosynthetic pathways in Portulacaceae.
The diversity of leaf anatomical types and C4 biochemical variants suggest multiple independent origins of C4 photosynthesis, and evidence for a switch from C4 to C3-C4 intermediacy supports the hypothesis that intermediates represent a distinct successful strategy. Expand
Structural, biochemical, and physiological characterization of photosynthesis in two C4 subspecies of Tecticornia indica and the C3 species Tecticornia pergranulata (Chenopodiaceae).
Comparative anatomical, cytochemical, and physiological studies on these taxa, which have near-aphyllous photosynthetic shoots, show that T. pergranulata is C(3), and that two subspecies of T. indica are C(4) (Kranz-tecticornoid type). Expand
