SUMMARY Water deficits cause a reduction in the rate of photosynthesis. Exposure to mild water deficits, when relative water content (RWC) remains above 70%, primarily causes limitation to carbon dioxide uptake because of stomatal closure. With greater water deficits, direct inhibition of photosynthesis occurs. In both cases limitation of carbon dioxide fixation results in exposure of chloroplasts to excess excitation energy. Much of this can be dissipated by various photoprotective mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
