The use of chlorophyll fluorescence to monitor photosynthetic performance in algae and plants is now widespread. This review examines how fluorescence parameters can be used to evaluate changes in photosystem II (PSII) photochemistry, linear electron flux, and CO(2) assimilation in vivo, and outlines the theoretical bases for the use of specific fluorescence parameters. Although fluorescence parameters can be measured easily, many potential problems may arise when they are applied to predict… Expand
Chlorophyll a Fluorescence in Abiotic Stress
Chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence is a non-invasive technique employed to measure photosynthesis in leaves, widely used to study plant’s response to abiotic stresses. In fact, Chl fluorescenceExpand
Leaf Chlorophyll Fluorescence: Background and Fundamentals for Plant Biologists

Photosynthesis assessed by chlorophyll fluorescence
TLDR
The theoretical and technical background of chlorophyll fluorescence, a method for noninvasive analysis of the photosynthetic activity in plants and algae, is explained, the most important fluorescence parameters are explained, and the most commonly used instruments are introduced and compares. Expand
Unresolved quenching mechanisms of chlorophyll fluorescence may invalidate MT saturating pulse analyses of photosynthetic electron transfer in microalgae.
TLDR
The results suggest that quenching of fluorescence by oxidized plastoquinone alone cannot explain the phenomenon, and alternative quench mechanisms within PSII need to be considered. Expand

Use of a pulse-amplitude modulated chlorophyll fluorometer to study the efficiency of photosynthesis in Arabidopsis plants.

Chlorophyll a fluorescence: beyond the limits of the QA model
TLDR
This review focuses on the processes determining the fluorescence rise on a dark-to-light transition and critically analyze the experimental data and the existing models and concludes that conclusions on α/ß-centers, PSII connectivity, and the assignment of FV/FM to the maximum PSII quantum yield may require critical re-evaluations.

New Fluorescence Parameters for the Determination of QA Redox State and Excitation Energy Fluxes
TLDR
A new parameter, qL, is introduced, based on a Stern–Volmer approach using a lake model, which estimates the fraction of open PS II centers and should be a useful parameter for terrestrial plants consistent with a high connectivity of PS II units, whereas some marine species with distinct antenna architecture may require the use of more complex parameters based on intermediate models of the photosynthetic unit.

The kinetics of photoinhibition of the photosynthetic apparatus in pea chloroplasts
TLDR
Fluorescence analyses demonstrated that during this period thylakoids were becoming increasingly less efficient at generating and maintaining a transmembrane proton electrochemical gradient and the possibility of two distinct mechanisms of photoinhibitory damage to the photosynthesis apparatus is discussed.

Determining the rate of photorespiratory release of oxygen (Rl) has previously only been possible by isotopic methods, now, by combining gas exchange and fluorescence measurements, Rl may be determined simply and routinely in the field. Expand
Environmental Effects on the Relationship Between the Quantum Yields of Carbon Assimilation and in vivo PsII Electron Transport in Maize
TLDR
The relationship between the quantum yield of PSII electron transport (¦e) and the quantumield of CO2 assimilation (ΦCO2) was generally found to be linear, with similar slopes, which indicates that PSII electrons transport is tightly coupled to CO2 Assimilation such that measurements of ¦e may be used to estimate photosynthetic rates in maize.
