In the order C. microphylla — C. intermedia — C. korshinskii, compensation irradiance, saturation irradiance, and optimum temperature for photosynthesis increased, net photosynthetic rate (P N) at low irradiance and low temperature decreased, optimum air humidity decreased, and P N at low air humidity increased. Daily cumulative value of P N increased while daily cumulative value of transpiration (E) decreased, and hence water use efficiency (WUE =P N/E) increased. Diurnal course of P N of C… CONTINUE READING
