The non-graminaceous wild flora of Hungary was screened for C4 plants by using the stable carbon isotope ratio, the leaf anatomy and the photosynthetic carbon dioxide compensation concentration to determine the photosynthetic pathway type. On the whole, 31 C4 species (native or naturalized) were found in the Amaranthaceae, Chenopodiaceae, Cyperaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Portulacaceae and Zygophyllaceae families. Together with the 26 C4 grass species (Poaceae) reported earlier (Kalapos 1991), a total… CONTINUE READING
