and distribution and vine cold hardiness: sourcesink interaction
Among the fluorescence parameters, Fv/Fm and yield are considered as the most relevant because they indicate the functioning of photosystem II (PSII) and, consequently, the efficiency in the use of photochemical radiation in carbon assimilation
Increasing photosynthetic carbon assimilation
in C3 plants to improve crop yield: current and future strategies.
The high stomatal control typical of isohydric species has possibly affected the carbon assimilation
rate of the treated plants and consequently their growth.
For example, it is a general trend that rates of carbon assimilation
and specific leaf area under nursery conditions of shade-intolerant and tolerant species vary accordingly with the behavior found under natural conditions (Aleric & Kirkman, 2005).
Impacts of drought stress on water relations and carbon assimilation
in grass land species at different altitudes.
The response of carbon assimilation
rate to leaf internal concentration of CO2 (A/Ci) was determined in the growth chamber using the Li-6400 Portable Photosynthesis System (LI-COR, Inc., USA), with three replicates for each biotype.
However, whether periodic tidal inundation also affects carbon assimilation
is still not clear.
Land Management Implications of Carbon Assimilation
Rate Differences among Plant Communities--Measurement Process.
Both canopy transpiration and C[O.sub.2] uptake are jointly controlled by leaf stomata, and therefore carbon assimilation
and water use by plants can be tightly coupled.
