    i was told that the ATP required to form 1/6 Glucose from 1 CO₂ in C4 cycle is just 3 but 5 in CAM plants...
    dont both need 5 CO₂
    and also why 5 CO₂??
    3 for C3 cycle ..fine
    one for regeneration of pyuruvic acid to PEP..fine

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
