Kranz Leaf Anatomy Cuff

Regular price €378.00

This cuff depicts the Kranz anatomy of leaves specialized for C4-type photosynthesis by monocots and some dicot plants. Shown as a cross-section of the leaf, thick layers of cells surround the vascular bundle forming a wreath ('Kranz' in German). It is in these cells surrounding the vascular bundle that the biochemical reactions of C4 photosynthesis occur. C4 photosynthesis is more efficient under certain environmental conditions, such as drought, resulting in more carbon fixation than C3 photosynthesis. This remarkable cuff was designed in collaboration with Dr. Jane Langdale.

The Kranz Leaf Anatomy Cuff is printed in natural, unpolished bronze and is sized medium with circumference 17.45 cm, 6.1 cm long axis width, 4.95 cm short axis width, opening is 3 cm wide.
