New Fluorescence Parameters for the Determination of QA Redox State and Excitation Energy Fluxes
A number of useful photosynthetic parameters are commonly derived from saturation pulse-induced fluorescence analysis. We show, that qP, an estimate of the fraction of open centers, is based on aExpand

The dissipation of excess excitation energy in British plant species
The reversible dissipation of excitation energy in higher plants is believed to protect against light-induced damage to the photosynthetic apparatus. This dissipation is measured as theExpand

Contrasting Responses of Photosynthesis to Salt Stress in the Glycophyte Arabidopsis and the Halophyte Thellungiella: Role of the Plastid Terminal Oxidase as an Alternative Electron Sink1[C][OA]
The effects of short-term salt stress on gas exchange and the regulation of photosynthetic electron transport were examined in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) and its salt-tolerant close relativeExpand

Physiological characterisation of magnesium deficiency in sugar beet: acclimation to low magnesium differentially affects photosystems I and II
Magnesium deficiency in plants is a widespread problem, affecting productivity and quality in agriculture, yet at a physiological level it has been poorly studied in crop plants. Here, aExpand

A zeaxanthin-independent nonphotochemical quenching mechanism localized in the photosystem II core complex.
Illumination of dark-adapted barley plants with low light transiently induced a large nonphotochemical quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence. This reaction was identified as a form ofExpand

Down-regulation of linear and activation of cyclic electron transport during drought
The effects of short-term drought on the regulation of electron transport through photosystems I and II (PSI and PSII) have been studied in Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Chariot. Fluorescence measurementsExpand

Dynamic Acclimation of Photosynthesis Increases Plant Fitness in Changing Environments1[C][W][OA]
Plants growing in different environments develop with different photosynthetic capacities—developmental acclimation of photosynthesis. It is also possible for fully developed leaves to change theirExpand

Redox modulation of cyclic electron flow around photosystem I in C3 plants.
We have investigated the occurrence of cyclic electron flow in intact spinach leaves. In particular, we have tested the hypothesis that cyclic flow requires the presence of supercomplexes in theExpand
