Carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity in plants was first reported in 1939(Neish, 1939). Since then there have been two major periods of research; an early period in which CAs were studied using classical biochemical techniques (purification and determination of kinetic properties) and a late period in which the physiology and the molecular biology were studied. Since the early period of CA research has been reviewed (see Badger and Price, 1994; Deutsch, 1987; Poincelot, 1979) in this chapter, I will address advances in our understanding of the molecular biology and physiology of carbonic anhydrase in higher plants.
