Because the present-day atmosphere contains 21% O2 and only 0.037% C02,
photorespiration occurs in C3 plants because carbon dioxide may be available in
only trace amounts. The recent trend of increasing levels of atmospheric carbon
dioxide has actually increased the efficiency of C3 plants grown as crops. But
other plants have evolved mechanisms to overcome photorespiration. C4 plants
and CAM plants have mechanisms to reduce photorespiration C3 plants rely on
the ...

nearly 8000 plants are recorded to possess C4 pathway, distributed among 18
families of monocots and dicots (Sage et al., 1999). Several C3-C4 intermediates
have been identified, and are good experimental systems to study the evolution
of C4 photosynthesis and the mechanism of reduced photorespiration (
Rawsthorne and Bauwe, 1998; Monson and Raws- thorne, 2000). So far, 30 C3-
C4 intermediate species are reported from seven families (Table 1). Flaveria is
one of the most ...

With strong evidence for a significant increase in carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere as a consequence of the burning of fossil fuel and deforestation, it is
essential to determine the long- term effects of the higher carbon dioxide partial
pressures on photosynthesis. BjOrkman, Downton, and Pike* have investigated
the effect of CO2 enrichment lasting weeks or months on several C3 and C4
plants. Not surprisingly there was very little effect on the C4 plants, since a
distinctive feature of C4 ...

increase from between 1.7' and 3.9 C during this century (66). These changes in
atmospheric composition and temperature will directly influence the balance
between Cj carbon fixation and photorespiration. Because C4 plants already
have a metabolic C02 -enrichment mechanism, the effects of enhanced
atmospheric CO7 abundance are predicted to be much less pronounced than in
Q plants (82). It is often suggested that this increase in C02 will alter the
geographic distribution of ...
