Photoinhibition, carotenoid composition and the co-regulation of photochemical and non-photochemical quenching in neotropical savanna trees
Plants in the neotropical savannas of central Brazil are exposed to high irradiances, high air temperatures and low relative humidities. These conditions impose a selection pressure on plants for strong stomatal regulation of transpiration to maintain water balance. Diurnal adjustments of non-photochemical energy dissipation in photosystem II (PSII) provide a dynamic mechanism to reduce the risk of photoinhibitory damage during the middle of the day when irradiances and leaf temperatures are...[Show more]
