A simple alternative approach to assessing the fate of absorbed light energy using chlorophyll fluorescence

Hendrickson, Luke; Furbank, Robert Thomas; Chow, Wah S (Fred)


We propose a simplified alternative method for quantifying the partitioning of excitation energy between photochemistry, fluorescence and thermal dissipation. This alternative technique uses existing well-defined quantum efficiencies such as PS II, leaving no 'excess' efficiency unaccounted for, effectively separates regulated and constitutive thermal dissipation processes, does not require the use of F o and F′ o measurements and gives very similar results to the method proposed by Kramer et...[Show more]
