Experiments on photosynthesis in intermittent light have been made on two occasions. Brown and Escombe, in 1905, made use of a rotating sector to study the effect of light intensity on the photosynthesis of leaves. They found three-quarters of the light from a given source could be cut out in each revolution of the sector without decreasing the rate of photosynthesis. Willst~itter (1918, p. 240) explains that this was probably due to the low concentration of carbon dioxide available for the… CONTINUE READING
