  • Glycerate 3-phosphate
  • Bcoz hatch slack pathway is in the C4 and CAM plant, increase the CO2 conc for carboxylation in calvin cycle, so photorespiration is prevent or reduce.

    2. 2. HOW CACTUS AND BROMELIADS CAN GROW WELL UNDER DRY CONDITION?
    3. 3.  Cacti -most water-resourceful plants in the world  Pineapple- highly tolerant of drought.  Drought tolerant  refers to the degree to which a plant is adapted to arid or drought conditions.  drought tolerant plants typically make use of either C4 carbon fixation / crassulacean acis metabolism (CAM) to fix carbon during photosynthesis.  Both cactus and bromeliads are CAM plants.
    4. 4. WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTIC OF CACTUS AND BROMELIADS?
    5. 5. THE CHARACTERISTICS THAT HELP THEM TO SURVIVE IN DROUGHT. Cactuses Criteria Bromeliads Leaves on most cacti are Leaves ~The epidermis of leaf is absent or extremely tiny especially thick and tough to resist damage and desiccation. ~A special layer of water storage cells on the underside of the leaf that act as a reserve in times of water stress ~have tiny scales on their leaves called trichomes. The cactus stem serves Stem Have distinctive, water- as the plant's main absorbing scales . Their photosynthetic organ and thinness and large is used for water storage surface area make the scales ideal for rapidly absorbing water.
    6. 6. Cactuses Criteria Bromeliads Cactus roots help to Roots Able to resist wilting gather and preserve water in several ways . open their stomates at Stomata Opens its stomata during night rather than during the night rather than the the day in hot or dry daytime climates (CAM Photosynthesis) (CAM Photosynthesis) •Spines Others •Xerophytes •Skin
    7. 7. BROMELIADS LEAVES  Unique shape and arrangement of the leaves of bromeliads. Wide and deeply U-shaped where they join the stem, forming a series of vessel-like compartments.  When it rains, water flows down the leaves and pools in the compartments, where it can be absorbed by the umbrella scales.  Remarkable "tank plants" - Nidularium and Billbergia.  Greatly reduced stem & densely packed leaves have broad, overlapping bases, resulting in a pitcher or vase- like center-the tank.  Rainwater fills the tank ,as the tank is shaded by the dense crown of leaves around it, the water does not evaporate quickly and can persist, enabling the plant to survive periods of drought
    8. 8. CACTUSES ROOTS  Shallow & extensive root systems  Spread laterally away from the plant.  Maximize water intake from a large area.  Change characteristics as the water supply fluctuates.  Existing dehydrated roots become more water conductive after rainfall.  Formation of new rain roots to help soak up water.  In times of drought, the rain roots shrivel and fall off .The existing roots dehydrate.  The shrinkage of the existing roots creates an air gap that helps to prevent water in the roots from escaping back to the soil.  A corky layer on the roots also helps to prevent water loss.
    9. 9. SPINES OF CACTUS  Spines help the cactus in several ways.  Protection against foragers.  Water from dew condenses on spines and, in some cactus species, downward-pointing spines help to direct rainwater to the roots of the plant.  Reflect light away from the cactus stem theoretically lowering the stem temperature.  Trap in a layer of air next to the cactus stem preventing loss of water via evaporative cooling.
    10. 10. SKIN OF CACTUS  Translucent & acts as the first line of defense against fungi, bacteria, and foraging animals.  The skin has two parts: the epidermis and the hypodermis.  The skin's hypodermis layer provides mechanical support for the plant.  A waxy layer of cells known as the cuticle covers the skin’s epidermis.  The wax in the cuticle helps the stem to hold in its water vapor reducing water loss.  Waxy cuticle is also lightly colored and reflects some of the incident light.  Contains numerous stomata (However, is less than the number for normal plants - another water-saving characteristic.)
    11. 11. XEROPHYTES  Possess many of the usual, water-conserving adaptations of such plants:  A thick epidermis covered with wax  Water-storage cells that cause the leaves to appear succulent (that is thick and fleshy  Sheathing leaf bases.
