Mass screening of rice mutant populations at low CO2 for identification of lowered photorespiration and respiration rates (2023)
Journal Article

Introduction: Identifying rice (Oryza sativa) germplasm with improved efficiency of primary metabolism is of utmost importance in order to increase yields. One such approach can be attained through screening genetically diverse populations under alte...

Sunflecks in the upper canopy: dynamics of light-use efficiency in sun and shade leaves of Fagus sylvatica (2022)
Journal Article

Sunflecks are transient patches of direct radiation that provide a substantial proportion of the daily irradiance to leaves in the lower canopy. In this position, faster photosynthetic induction would allow for higher sunfleck-use efficiency, as is c...

Interactions between nitrogen nutrition, canopy architecture and photosynthesis in rice, assessed using high-resolution 3D reconstruction (2020)
Journal Article

Increasing nitrogen use efficiency is a key target for yield improvement programs. Here we identify features of rice canopy architecture during altered N availability and link them to photosynthetic productivity. Empirical mathematical modelling, hig...

Three-dimensional plant architecture and sunlit-shaded patterns: a stochastic model of light dynamics in canopies (2018)
Preprint / Working Paper
Retkute, R., Townsend, A. J., Murchie, E. H., Jensen, O. E., & Preston, S. P. Three-dimensional plant architecture and sunlit-shaded patterns: a stochastic model of light dynamics in canopies

Background and Aims Diurnal changes in solar position and intensity combined with the structural complexity of plant architecture result in highly variable and dynamic light patterns within the plant canopy. This affects productivity through the comp... Read More about Three-dimensional plant architecture and sunlit-shaded patterns: a stochastic model of light dynamics in canopies.
