Respiration and photosynthesis in cones of Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.)

  title={Respiration and photosynthesis in cones of Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.)},
  author={Andres Koppel and Erik Troeng and Sune Linder},
Dark respiration and photosynthetic carbon dioxide refixation in purple and green Picea abies cones were investigated from budbreak to cone maturity. The rate of dark respiration per unit dry weight and CO2 refixation capacity decreased during cone maturation. At the beginning of the growing season, photosynthetic CO2 refixation could reduce the amount of CO2 released by respiration in green and purple cones by 50% and 40%, respectively. The seasonal performance of the components of the cone… CONTINUE READING
