Dark respiration in the light was estimated in leaves of two woody species (Heteromeles arbutifolia Ait. and Lepechinia fragans Greene) using two different approaches based on gas-exchange techniques: the Kok method and the Laisk method. In all cases, dark respiration in the light was lower (P < 0.05) than respiration in darkness, indicating that dark respiration was inhibited in the light. Rates of dark respiration in the light estimated by the Laisk method were 52% higher (P < 0.05) than… CONTINUE READING
