|摘要||The photosynthetic performance and related leaf traits of Incarvillea delavayi Bur. et Franch were studied at different water regimes to assess its capacity for photosynthetic acclimation to water stress. The initial response of I. delavayi to water stress was the closure of stomata, which resulted in down-regulation of photosynthesis. The stomatal limitation (S(L)) represented the main component to photosynthetic limitations but non-stomatal limitation (NS(L)) increased quickly with the increasing water stress, and had similar magnitude to SL under severe water stress (soil moisture 25 - 30 % of field capacity). Chlorophyll (Chl) a fluorescence parameters characterizing photosystem (PS) 2 photochemical efficiency (Phi(PS2)), electron transport rate (J) and photochemical quenching (qP) decreased with the increasing water stress, indicating impaired photosynthetic apparatus. However, the water-stressed plants had a increased mesophyll CO(2) diffusional conductance, Chl a/b ratio, leaf nitrogen partitioning in RuBPCO and bioenergetics in later grown parts, indicating that I. delavay had a substantial physiological plasticity and showed a good tolerance to water stress.|
