Spectral sensitivity for photostimulated and photoinhibited phases of the development of Coprinus congregatus Bull. ex Fr. was determined from 405–730 nm. The cultures were exposed during 12 h to a constant number of incident quanta. Spectral sensitivity for photoinduction of primordia formation, for photoinhibition of primordia development and for photomaturation of primordia was quite similar, suggesting a common photoreceptor during fruit-body morphogenesis. A defined action spectrum for the… CONTINUE READING
