The extent of starch degradation in the light in pea leaves

Abstract

When 16-d-old plants of Pisum sativum, grown in a 12-h photoperiod, were transferred to continuous illumination, the starch content of the leaves rose steadily for 20 h but then declined appreciably. Plants of the same age, grown in an 18-h photoperiod, were, after 9 h light, exposed to 14CO2 in the light for 15 min, and then transferred to 12CO2 in the… (More)
