Comments The absorbed quantum yield (slope of a plot of absorbed quanta against net photosynthesis at low light levels) of Camissonia is 0.055 mole of CO2 per einstein, at ambient CO2 and O2 concentrations and the measurement temperature of 30°C, a value similar to those obtained for many C3 and C4 species of higher plants (the value of the quantum yield is determined at low light levels in white light under conditions in which the net photosynthetic rate is linearly dependent on light intensity.)
