The Fascinating World of Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) Plants (2023)

Crassulacean acid metabolism info guide

Crassulacean acid metabolism, or CAM, is a unique photosynthetic pathway that allows certain plant species to conserve water and adapt to arid or semi-arid environments. CAM involves the accumulation of organic acids, specifically malic acid, in the vacuoles of plant cells during the night, which are then converted into glucose through the process of dark … Read more
