The effects of soil salinity on the functional activity of photosynthetic apparatus and pigment composition of two Paulownia lines (Paulownia tomentosa x fortunei and Paulownia elongata x elongata) were investigated. PAM chlorophyll fluorescence measurements revealed that salinity leads to: (i) an increase of the photochemical quenching coefficient (qP) and the linear electron transport rate (ETR) in both lines of Paulownia, while the maximum quantum yield of the primary photochemistry of PSII… CONTINUE READING
