Title: Measurement of carbon fixation and allocation using /sup 11/C-labeled carbon dioxide

Abstract

This paper describes the use of continuously produced and applied /sup 11/C in measurements of carbon dioxide assimilation and C movement in plant research. This technique differs from the pulsing type /sup 11/C research underway in other laboratories by being continuous and on-line with computer analysis making steady-state measurements of carbon fixation and movement possible. The studies to be described here make clear the advantages of using continuously produced and applied short half-lived isotopes.
