Biofyzikální principy přenosu hmoty a energie mezi rostlinou a prostředím, údaje o anatomii a morfologii fosilních asimilačních orgánů a experimenty s rostlinami ukazují, že to byla paleokoncentrace oxidu uhličitého, která rozhodla o tom, jak dnes vypadá list většiny rostlin. Článek rekonstruuje procesy vedoucí ke vzniku současné podoby plochého (planárního) listu s větvenou žilnatinou a četnými průduchy na jeho povrchu.

Biophysical principles of mass and energy transfer between plants and their environment, data on the anatomy and morphology of fossil assimilation organs and plant experiments show that it was the paleoconcen­tration of carbon dioxide that decided what the leaf of most plants looks like today. This article reconstructs the processes leading up to the current form of the flat leaf with branched veins and numerous stomata.
