Changes in Chlorophyll Fluorescence in Maize Plants with Imposed Rapid Dehydration at Different Leaf Ages

Abstract

A comparison of the effects of a rapidly imposed water deficit with different leaf ages on chlorophyll a fluorescence and gas exchange was performed in maize (Zea mays L.) plants. The relationships between photosynthesis and leaf relative turgidity (RT) and ion leakage were further investigated. Leaf dehydration substantially decreased net photosynthetic… (More)
