Compensating effects to growth of carbon partitioning changes in response to SO2 -induced photosynthetic reduction in radish.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Exposure of plants to SO2 reduced their photosynthetic performance due tio reductions in carboxylating capacity. Although the reduced carbon gain resulted in a lower growth rate of SO2 -exposed plants over that of controls, their loss of potential growth was minimized because of proportional increases in allocation to new leaf material.
