Light quality affects chloroplast electron transport rates estimated from Chl fluorescence measurements

Evans, John; Morgan, Patrick B; von Caemmerer, Susanne


Chl fluorescence has been used widely to calculate photosynthetic electron transport rates. Portable photosynthesis instruments allow for combined measurements of gas exchange and Chl fluorescence. We analyzed the influence of spectral quality of actinic light on Chl fluorescence and the calculated electron transport rate, and compared this with photosynthetic rates measured by gas exchange in the absence of photorespiration. In blue actinic light, the electron transport rate calculated from...[Show more]
