This paper represents an empirical study on the effect of different leaf orientations on the daily carbon gain and transpirational water loss of desert winter annuals. Laboratory physiological data on Malvastrum rotundifolium (Gray) and Lupinus arizonicus (Wats) were combined with energy budget concepts and field measurements of water relations and leaf movements to predict carbon gain patterns for horizontally oriented, diaheliotropic and paraheliotropic leaf movement types. The results showed… CONTINUE READING
