Ultrastructure and distribution of microbodies in leaves of grasses with and without CO2-photorespiration

  title={Ultrastructure and distribution of microbodies in leaves of grasses with and without CO2-photorespiration},
  author={Sue Ellen Frederick and Eldon H. Newcomb},
A comparative study was made of the ultrastructure, distribution and abundance of leaf microbodies in four species of “temperate” grasses with high and four “tropical” grasses with low CO2-photorespiration. The temperate grasses were all festucoid; the tropical grasses included two panicoid species and two chloridoid. Comparisons of relative abundance were made by computing the average numbers of microbody profiles per cell section. Although microbodies were present in the green parenchymatous… CONTINUE READING
