Carbon assimilation by tree stems: potential involvement of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase


In woody species, the photosynthesis of stems, especially young branches, occurs by refixing part of the internal respiratory CO2. The present study aims to improve the physiological characterization of stem photosynthesis by examining enzymatic characteristics. During an entire growing season, three enzymatic activities that are linked to C3 and C4… (More)
