Question:

The alternative pathways of photosynthesis using the C4 or CAM systems are said to be compromises. Why?

A) Each one minimizes both water loss and rate of photosynthesis.

B) C4 compromises on water loss and CAM compromises on photorespiration.

C) Each one both minimizes photorespiration and optimizes the Calvin cycle.

D) CAM plants allow more water loss, while C4 plants allow less CO2into the plant.

E) C4 plants allow less water loss but Cam plants but allow more water loss.



Answer:

C) Each one both minimizes photorespiration and optimizes the Calvin cycle.
