However, this reduction was more pronounced in the leaves since a greater amount of photosynthates were invested in root production, thus increasing the relative extension of the root system in the soil.
Our results suggest that the exposed peduncle is a photosynthetically active organ that produces photosynthates and thereby makes a crucial contribution to grain growth, particularly during the late stages of grain-filling.
This mutually beneficial relationship depends on photosynthates that are released by the symbionts and utilized by the coral host; corals, in turn, produce organic wastes upon which the symbionts thrive
Symbiodinium-coral symbioses, and the translocated photosynthates provided by
