Unlike other leaves investigated, maize leaves were found to be able to exhaust atmospheric CO2-content to zero concentration. This occurred at 20° C. with a light intensity of 100 f.c. and at 30° C. with a light intensity of 500 f.c. The influences of temperature, light intensity, and waterstrain on this property of maize leaves were investigated systematically and a permanent after-effect of waterstrain on the leaves was found. Stomatal conductance measurements showed that maize stomata are sensitive to CO2-concentrations between zero and 100 p.p.m., a circumstance not yet reported for other leaves.
