Ecophysiological studies in Hesperaloe funifera (Agavaceae): a potential new CAM crop. The effect of light availability on photosynthesis and growth


Journal of Arid Environments 33(4): 399-407
Ecophysiological studies in Hesperaloe funifera (Agavaceae): a potential new CAM crop. The effect of light availability on photosynthesis and growth
There is interest in this species as a fibre crop for arid conditions. In greenhouse studies, daily CO2 uptake peaked in the autumn. Shading greatly reduced CO2 uptake in the autumn and winter but had no significant effect in spring or summer. Biomass production decreased as shading increased, averaging 5.243 kg/plant in full sun and 3.671 kg/plant with 80% shading.
