CONT

Chez certaines plantes, il existe une photorespiration, c'est-à-dire, une augmentation de la respiration normale des tissus chlorophylliens due à l'action de la lumière. Les échanges gazeux dus à cette photorespiration sont généralement masqués par les processus photosynthétiques qui induisent des échanges gazeux inverses beaucoup plus intenses.
