Short-term (up to 5 h) transfers of shade-adapted (100 μmol · m−2 · s−1) clonal tissue of the marine macroalga Ulva rotundata Blid. (Chlorophyta) to higher irradiances (1700, 850, and 350 μmol · m−2 · s−1) led to photoinhibition of room-temperature chlorophyll fluorescence and O2 evolution. The ratio of variable to maximum (Fv/Fm) and variable (Fv)(More)
The relationships between photoinhibition and photoprotection in high and low-light-grown Ulva were examined by a combination of chlorophyll-fluorescence-monitoring techniques. Tissues were exposed to a computer-controlled sequence of 5-min exposures to red light, followed by 5-min darkness, with stepwise increases in photon flux. Coefficients of(More)
Clonal tissue of the marine chlorophyte macroalga,Ulva rotundata Blid., was transferred from 100 to 1700 μmol photons · m−2 · s−1 under limiting (1.5 μM NH 4 + maximum, N/P=2) and sufficient (15 μM NH 4 + maximum, N/P=20) nitrogen supply at 18° C and 11 h light-13 h darkness daily. Photoinhibition was assayed by light-response curves (photosynthetic O2(More)
We have investigated the diurnal response of photosynthesis and variable photosystem II (PSII) chlorophyll fluorescence at 77 K for thalli of the chlorophyte macroalga, Ulva rotundata, grown in outdoor culture and transplanted to an intertidal sand flat in different seasons. The physiological response in summer indicated synergistic effects of high PFD and(More)
