Algal numbers could be regulated pre-mitotically by limited nutrient availability (see, for example, Blank and Muscatine, 1987; Kolber et al., 1988; Falkowski et al., 1993; Hoegh-Guldberg, 1994; Muller-Parker et al., 1994; Snidvongs and Kinzie, 1994); by density-dependent negative feedback by the algae themselves (Muscatine and Pool, 1979; McAuley and Darrah, 1990); by host-induced release of photosynthate from the algae (Muscatine, 1967; Cook, 1983; Douglas and Smith, 1984; Sutton and Hoegh-Guldberg, 1990; McAuley, 1992; Gates et al., 1995); or by factors manifested by the host cells that inhibit the algal cell cycle (Smith and Muscatine, 1999).
Kentucky bluegrass photosynthate partitioning following scheduled mowing.
Therefore, both anemone types in the field maintain similar ratios of algal to animal biomass and receive similar amounts of photosynthate.
1992, Ashmore 1997), and thus they may limit available resources by inhibiting production of photosynthates and nutrient intake.
Seed set and kernel abortion are tied to maintaining a balance between sink demand for a continuous stream of photosynthate and sink capacity for photosynthate relative to kernel initiation, growth, and development requirements associated with synchronous or asynchronous pollination (Zinselmeier et al., 2000).

The flag leaf is the most important provider of photosynthates to the grain in the later stage of the grain-filling period (Mengel and Kirkby, 1982).
When four or more leaves were present on the receptor branch, either the photosynthates produced by the leaves diluted the flowering-inhibiting substance passed across the graft, or the flowering inhibitor(s) produced by the receptor countered the flowering-inducing substances from the donor branch.

Earlier studies supported the relationship between canopy cover with photosynthate production and dry matter accumulation (Jun Luo et al., 2014), fruit production (Elfeel and Abohassan, 2016) and as indicator to measure gross primary production (Street et al., 2007).
