Short-term effects of root-zone temperatures (RZT) of 28, 33, 38, and 43C for 6 hours daily on container-grown Musa spp. (AAA) «Grande Naine » and Ixora chinensis L. «Maui» were determined under greenhouse and growth room conditions. Diurnal fluctuation of leaf carbon assimilation (LCA) was altered by treatments.In the growth room at 43C, the maximum LCA occurred about midday for banana, but not until afternoon in ixora
