Lose less water without affecting carbon fixation in plants? Recent study offers a novel approach

2019-04-17

Stomata are pores in the leaf epidermis that play a crucial role in plants. They allow CO2 uptake for photosynthetic carbon assimilation at the expense of water loss via transpiration. Efforts to improve plant water use efficiency (WUE) have focused on reducing stomatal density, despite its implicit penalty in carbon assimilation. Approaches to reducing transpiration without incurring a ...
