Drought stress and carbon assimilation in a warming climate: Reversible and irreversible impacts.

  title={Drought stress and carbon assimilation in a warming climate: Reversible and irreversible impacts.},
  author={Urs Feller},
  journal={Journal of plant physiology},
Global change is characterized by increased CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, increasing average temperature and more frequent extreme events including drought periods, heat waves and flooding. Especially the impacts of drought and of elevated temperature on carbon assimilation are considered in this review. Effects of extreme events on the subcellular level as well as on the whole plant level may be reversible, partially reversible or irreversible. The photosynthetically active biomass… CONTINUE READING
