    • Abstract


      Photoacoustic spectroscopy was applied to determine the distribution of chlorophylla in the abaxial and adaxial sides of the leaf in 27 species of angiospermous plants. Two distinct patterns were observed in the ratio of the level of chlorophylla in the abaxial to adaxial side of the leaf in the monocotyledons and in dicotyledons plants. The ratio was not correlated with the C3 or C4 type of photosynthetic pathways.
