Relationship of leaf anatomy with photosynthetic acclimation of Valeriana jatamansi was studied under full irradiance [FI, 1 600 μmol(PPFD) m−2 s−1] and net-shade [NS, 650 μmol(PPFD) m−2 s−1]. FI plants had thicker leaves with higher respiration rate (R D), nitrogen content per unit leaf area, chlorophyll a/b ratio, high leaf mass per leaf area unit (LMA), and surface area of mesophyll cell (S mes) and chloroplasts (S c) facing intercellular space than NS plants. The difference between leaf… CONTINUE READING
