A survey of the responsiveness of plant species, typical of open and shade habitats, to simulated natural shade-light quality (i.e. white light plus supplementary far-red) has demonstrated a systematic relationship between habitat and certain developmental responses. Supplementary far-red light has a much greater effect on stem extension rate, petiole length, and leaf dry weight: stem dry weight ratio of the open habitat, shade-intolerant species. Far-red effects on leaf chlorophyll content… CONTINUE READING
