Leaf traits in plants growing at various temperature combinations

Leaf traits in plants growing at various temperature combinations in mungbean genotypes. The plants were moved from outdoor conditions to growth-chamber conditions at 740 Y-P time of flowering (40 days after sowing); details in materials and methods.
