Leaf Anatomy in Relation to C3 and C4 Pathways of CO2 Fixation

Leaf Anatomy in Relation to C3 and C4 Pathways of CO2 Fixation

Introduction Leaf anatomy may influence net leaf photosynthesis to a large degree and thus cause great differences in light-use efficiency. Like the root and stem, the leaf consists of vascular, parenchymatous and dermal tissue, the latter being a persistent epidermis. The epidermis protects the leaf against uncontrolled high water loss and against damage caused by environmental factors such as wind or micro-organisms. Even though the leaf has a compact arrangement of cells yet there is exchange of gases with the…
