Photosynthesis in Flowers of Petunia Hybrida: Low CO2 Flow and Coordinated Reduction Between Photosynthetic Systems
In a previous paper (1) we reported on the presence of chloroplasts in the corollas of Petunia hybrida, in all stages of their development. Chloroplasts isolated from mature pink corollas carried out electron transport at only one quarter of the rate of chloroplasts from green leaves. The aim of the present work was to further characterize the photosynthetic systems of the Petunia corolla.
