 Title    Consequences of High C 0 2-Concentrations in Air on Growth and Gas-Exchange Rates in Tobacco Mutants  
 Abstract    Wild type tobacco N. tabacum var. John William's Broadleaf and the tobacco aurea mutant Su/su were permanently grown under 700 ppm C 0 2 in air. In comparison to plants grown under 350 ppm C 0 2 in air but under otherwise identical conditions growth was substantially enhanced. Gas exchange measurem ents carried out by mass spectrometry show that the rate of photosynthesis in the wild type and in the mutant is increased by more than 100%. The photorespiratory rate in the wild type measured as 180 2-uptake in the light in the "700 ppm C 0 2-plants" is not reduced to the extent expected or deduced from experiments in which the 350 ppm system responds under in vitro conditions to 700 ppm C 0 2. An analysis of the induction kinetics of room tem perature fluorescence kinetics of the adapted (700 ppm C 0 2) system and the control system (350 ppm C 0 2) under various C 0 2-partial pressures shows that perm anent growth under the elevated C 0 2-partial pressure leads to a structural modifi­ cation of the photosynthetic apparatus.
