Abstract

Cissus quadrangularis L., a tendril-climbing shrub of the Vitaceae; bears deciduos fleshy leaves which show CAM activity as the green stems. The stems exibit extraordinary capacity for water retention. The metabolic aotivity af C. quadrangularis, as estimated by noeturnal acidification, per¬sists after 135 days of drought. After remoistening nocturnal synthesis of malie acid is highly enhanced, nitrogen content increases significantly and a fast growth is promoted.
