  • A system for measurement of leaf gas exchange while regulating leaf to air vapour pressure difference has been developed; it comprises an assimilation chamber, leaf temperature controller, mass flow controller, dew point controller and personal computer. A relative humidity sensor and air and leaf temperature sensors, which are all used for regulating the vapour pressure difference, are mounted into the chamber. During the experiments, the computer continuously monitored the photosynthetic… CONTINUE READING
