The temperature response of CO2 assimilation, photochemical activities and Rubisco activation in Camelina sativa, a potential bioenergy crop with limited capacity for acclimation to heat stress – A. E. Carmo-Silva and M. E. Salvucci – Planta – 2012

Summary: Temperature response and the potential for heat acclimation were evaluated for Camelina sativa. Moderate heat stress caused a reduction in camelina seed yield. The fact that photosynthesis exhibited no acclimation to moderate heat stress will likely impact the development of camelina and other cool season Brassicaceae as sources of bioenergy in a warmer world.
