Quenching partitioning through light-modulated chlorophyll fluorescence: A quantitative analysis to assess the fate of the absorbed light in the field

Losciale, Pasquale; Hendrickson, Luke; Corelli-Grappadelli, Luca; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


Plants use a small part of the total absorbed light energy for net carboxylation, while the remaining amount is dissipated via alternative pathways involving thermal processes, fluorescence and non-carboxylation photochemistry in order to limit the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and other photooxidative risks. The commonly used analysis of the Photosystem II (PSII) fluorescence signals gives qualitative information about absorbed light energy management by plants, but it is...[Show more]
