Rapid changes in xanthophyll cycle-dependent energy dissipation and photosystem II efficiency intwo vines, Sephania japonica and Smilax australis, growing in the under-storey of an open eucalyptus forest

Adams, William; Demmig-Adams, B; Logan, B; Barker, D; Osmond, C Barry


Leaves of Stephania japonica and Smilax australis were characterized in situ on the coast of north-eastern New South Wales, Australia, where they were growing naturally in three different light environments: deep shade, in the understory of an open Eucalyptus forest where they received frequent sunflecks of high intensity, and in an exposed site receiving full sunlight. In deep shade the xanthophyll cycle remained epoxidized during the day and the vast majority of absorbed light was utilized...[Show more]
