BACKGROUND AND AIMS The deployment of temporally separated carboxylation pathways for net CO(2) uptake in CAM plants provides plasticity and thus uncertainty on how species with this photosynthetic pathway will respond to life in a higher-CO(2) world. The present study examined how long-term exposure to elevated CO(2) influences the relative contributions that C(3) and C(4) carboxylation make to net carbon gain and to establish how this impacts on the availability of carbohydrates for export… CONTINUE READING
