Changes in photosynthesis, xanthophyll cycle, and sugar accumulation in two North Australia tropical species differing in leaf angles


Two tropical species of North Australia, Acacia crassicarpa and Eucalyptus pellita, have similar leaf size and leaf structure but different leaf angles. A. crassicarpa with near vertical leaf angle directly reduced photon absorption and leaf temperature (T l) and had relatively high photosynthetic activity (P max) and low xanthophyll cycle activity.
