Abstract

Photosynthetic responses to adaxial and abaxial irradiance were studied in species of different habitats. Species with vertically-oriented leaves found in open habitats and understory species did not vary in photosynthetic rates between treatments. Species with horizontal leaves from open habitats did vary in their photosynthetic rates between treatments (higher light saturation levels when plants were irradiated on the abaxial surface).
