Scholarcy highlights

  • Plant species that fix CO2 by the C4 cycle have higher rates of CO2 uptake than species using the C3 photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle
  • Greater CO2 fixation capacity has been associated with reduced photorespiration, specialized leaf anatomy, and biochemical pathways that differ in C3 and C4 plants
