Assaying the number of functional PSII complexes by the oxygen yield from leaf tissue per saturating, single-turnover flash, assuming that each functional PSII evolves one oxygen molecule after four flashes, is one of the most direct methods but time-consuming. The ratio of variable to maximum Chl fluorescence yield (Fv/Fm) in leaves can be correlated with the oxygen yield per flash during a progressive loss of PSII activity associated with high-light stress and is rapid and non-intrusive, but...[Show more]
