In South China, the photosynthetic characteristics of an invasive exotic weed Mikania micrantha H.B. Kunth and its indigenous close congener Mikania cordata (Burm. f.) B.L. Robinson were studied. Mikania micrantha exhibited a greater biochemical capacity for photosynthesis than M. cordata, as the former had higher V cmax and J max , which lead to its higher maximum assimilation rate (A max ) values. Similar light compensation point, apparent quantum yield (α), and dark respiration (R d… CONTINUE READING
