Energetic cost of photoinhibition in corals

  title={Energetic cost of photoinhibition in corals},
  author={Mia O Hoogenboom and Kenneth R. N. Anthony and Sean R Connolly},
Photoinhibition may constitute an energetic cost for photosynthetic organisms through damage to the photosynthetic apparatus, or by increased metabolism due to damage avoidance or repair. For several species of scleractinian corals, fluorescence techniques have revealed a significant reduction in photochemical efficiency of symbiotic dinoflagellates within coral tissue in response to excess light absorption. To date, it has been unclear whether or not photoinhibition has a negative impact on… CONTINUE READING
