The pathways and (eco)physiological significance of C4 photosynthesis were established by research in the late 1970s and early 1980s (Edwards & Walker 1983; see Edwards et al. 2010; Sage et al. 2012 for recent reviews). Research into C4 photosynthesis is enjoying a renaissance, partly because of a political reassessment of the need for increased agricultural productivity. It is profiting from the application of recent technologies like genome sequencing, transcriptome and proteome analysis and… CONTINUE READING
