The rate of photosynthesis of individual leaves can be measured by placing the leaf in a transparent chamber and monitoring the difference in COâ content of the ingoing and outgoing air. Using this technique, the rate of photosynthesis associated with any degree of illumination for any temperature, COâ content of air, moisture content, or air veloc...

A simulation model modified from one described by Duncan, et al was used to evaluate the variable factors that affect rates of photosynthesis in the field with particular emphasis on the carbon dioxide profile existing within the plant canopy. The photosynthetic assimilation rates were taken from data by Hesketh. The paper also deals with computing...
