Abstract

The photosynthetic responses to temperature in C3, C3-C4 intermediate, and C4 species in the genus Flaveria were examined in an effort to identify whether the reduced photorespiration rates characteristic of C3-C4 intermediate photosynthesis result in adaptive advantages at warm leaf temperatures. Results demonstrate that reductions in photorespiration rates in C3-C4 intermediate plants create photosynthetic advantages at warm leaf temperatures that in C3 plants could only be achieved through substantial costs to water-use efficiency and/or nitrogen-use efficiency. -from Authors
