Heat-Induced Increase in the Tolerance of the Wheat Photosynthetic Apparatus to Combined Action of High Temperature and Visible Light: CO2 Fixation, Photosynthetic Pigments, and Chloroplast Ultrastructure

Abstract

Heating of the leaves of 15-day-old wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) plants at 42°C in the light (370 W/m2 PAR) suppressed their ability to fix CO2 twice stronger than heating in darkness. Heat hardening (3 h at 38–39°C) improved the tolerance of photosynthesis to combined action of high light and temperature but did not affect the tolerance to photoinhibition… (More)
