C4 species can achieve high light, water and nitrogen use efficiencies. The evolution of C4 photosynthesis is connected to re-arrangements in leaf anatomy and biochemistry, it probably happened via intermediate stages. The Brassicaceae family contains several species with leaf traits ranging between the typical characteristics of C3 and C4 species, especially intermediate CO2 compensation points and centrifugal arrangement of organelles in the bundle sheath. Our group studies these C3-C4 intermediate photosynthesis forms on biochemical, anatomical and developmental level.
