Leaf anatomy and irradiance-dependent leaf transmittance changes serving as irradiance acclimation mechanisms in leaves were studied in two ecologically contrasting Tradescantia species, a shade plant T. fluminensis Vell. and a sun plant T. sillamontana Matuda, grown at different irradiances. A dramatic increase in leaf thickness (2 to 4-fold) under a high growth irradiance (800 μmol m⁻² s⁻¹) comp ...
