The significantly smaller size of bulbs utilized during the second two-year study (starting in 2005) may have contributed to this difference, since smaller bulbs tend to devote much of their photosynthate production to increasing bulb reserves to a point that ensures a greater probability of a successful reproduction event (Fiedler 1987; Philippi and Seger 1989; Fenner 1998; Worley and Harder 1999).
Increased leaf area in plants, in turn, allows more light interception, with total potential favoring photosynthesis and, consequently, increased production of photosynthate that can be made available for plant growth and fruit production (Reis, Azevedo, Albuquerque, & Silva Junior, 2013).
While the host plant allocates a significant amount of its photosynthates (Smith and Read, 1997) to the fungal symbionts to support almost entirely their metabolism, growth and formation of their fruit bodies, the ECM fungi transfer essential nutrients (mainly N, P and K) to the host.
In the current research study heat stress imposed at anthesis growth stage resulted changes in the physiological attributes such as leaf proline, SOD activity, POD activity, membrane stability index, photosynthate reserve translocation, yield and its components.
Clade B releases less photosynthate of lower apparent quality than clade A, with photosynthetic carbon recovered principally from organic acids in symbiosis with clade B and from amino acids in symbioses with clade A (Loram et al.

Others have found evidence of rapid root-exudation of recent photosynthate and utilisation by rhizosphere microflora.
One speculation is that the plant, when treated with SA, has reduced photosynthate allocated to the production of secondary compounds such as jasmonic acid, so that more photosynthate is available for allocation to biomass.

Clonal plants can share resources (Alpert and Mooney 1986, Marshall 1990, Alpert 1996, Wijesinghe and Hutchings 1997) and redistribute photosynthate (Tissue and Nobel 1988, Kemball and Marshall 1995) among ramets in patchy environments.
