Assessment of photoprotection mechanisms of grapevines at low temperature

Hendrickson, Luke; Ball, Marilyn; Osmond, C. Barry; Furbank, Robert Thomas; Chow, Wah S (Fred)

Description

The photosynthetic response of grapevine leaves (Vitis vinifera L. cv. Riesling) to low temperature was studied in the field and laboratory. Light-saturated rates of photosynthetic electron transport were lower and non-photochemical energy dissipation was higher when leaves were subject to low morning temperatures than to high afternoon temperatures under field conditions. These responses to low temperatures occurred without sustained reduction of quantum efficiency of PSII as measured by the...[Show more]
