Photosynthetic Carbon Assimilation in a Shootless Orchid, Chiloschista usneoides (DON) LDL: A Variant on Crassulacean Acid Metabolism.
Photosynthetic carbon assimilation in the roots of a shootless orchid Chiloschista usneoides (DON) LDL involves the synthesis and accumulation of malic acid from CO(2) in darkness. Malic acid is… Expand
CARBON FIXATION IN ORCHID AERIAL ROOTS
SUMMARY Orchid aerial roots contained chlorophylls and were shown to be capable of photosynthesis. 14C0 2 feeding in the light showed that the C 3 pathway was operating during the day. Aerial roots… Expand
Regulation of malic-acid metabolism in Crassulacean-acid-metabolism plants in the dark and light: In-vivo evidence from 13C-labeling patterns after 13CO2 fixation
The labeling patterns in malic acid from dark 13CO2 fixation in seven species of succulent plants with Crassulacean acid metabolism were analysed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and… Expand
Recycling of respiratory CO2 during Crassulacean acid metabolism: alleviation of photoinhibition in Pyrrosia piloselloides
The regulation of Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) in the fern Pyrrosia piloselloides (L.) Price was investigated in Singapore on two epiphytic populations acclimated to sun and shade conditions.… Expand
Gas Exchange and Water Relations in Epiphytic Tropical Ferns
The abundance of epiphytes is a characteristic feature of the rich vegetation of the wet tropics. Among the epiphytic vascular plants ferns are quite frequent (Chaps. 2, 3 and 9). According to Holtum… Expand

CRASSULACEAN ACID METABOLISM IN YOUNG ORCHID LEAVES
Summary Acidity fluctuations typical of Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) were observed in both young and mature leaves of a succulent orchid hybrid Arachnis Maggie Oei. The maximum level of… Expand
