Carbon-isotope ratios and photosynthetic pathways in the neotropical family rapateaceae

Abstract:

The Rapateaceae is a small, mainly Neotropical family of terrestrial or occasionally epiphytic herbs that grow on mesic, nutrient-poor sites. Some recent studies suggest that the Rapateaceae may be closely related to the Bromeliaceae, one of the major families containing CAM plants. To investigate the photosynthetic pathway in Rapateaceae, the plant carbon-isotope ratio (δ 13C) was determined for samples from dried herbarium specimens for 85 of the approximately 100 sp...
