Etiolated seedlings of angiosperms illuminated for a few hours and then returned to darkness continue to accumulate chlorophyll (Chl) a (Popov and Dilova, 1969; Adamson et al., 1997, and refs. therein). In leaves of barley (Hordeum vulgare) seedlings and leaves of Tradescancia albiflora, Chl content was increase in darkness by 20% to 30% and by 38% to 69… CONTINUE READING
