Improving the estimation of mesophyll conductance to CO2: on the role of electron transport rate correction and respiration.

Martins, S. C. V, Galmés, J., Molins, A., & DaMatta, F. M. (2013). Improving the estimation of mesophyll conductance to CO₂: on the role of electron transport rate correction and respiration. Journal of Experimental Botany, 64(11), 3285–98.

Mesophyll conductance (gm) can markedly limit photosynthetic CO2 assimilation and is required to estimate the parameters of the Farquhar–von Caemmerer–Berry (FvCB) model properly. The variable J (electron transport rate) is the most frequently used method for estimating gm,…

Augmentation of abscisic acid (ABA) levels by drought does not induce short-term stomatal sensitivity to CO2 in two divergent conifer species

McAdam SAM, Brodribb TJ, Ross JJ, Jordan GJ. 2011. Augmentation of abscisic acid (ABA) levels by drought does not induce short-term stomatal sensitivity to CO2 in two divergent conifer species. Journal of Experimental Botany 62(1): 195-203.

The stomata of conifers display very little short-term response to changes in atmospheric CO2 concentration (Ca), whereas the stomatal responses of angiosperms to Ca increase in response to water stress. This behaviour of angiosperm stomata appears to be…
