The kinetic response of photosystem II (PS II) photochemistry in Spirulina platensis(Norstedt M2 ) to high salinity (0.75 M NaCl) was found to consist of two phases. The first phase, which was independent of light, was characterized by a rapid decrease (15–50%) in the maximal efficiency of PS II photochemistry (Fv /Fm), the efficiency of excitation energy capture by open PS II reaction centres (Fv′/Fm′), photochemical quenching (qp) and the quantum yield of PS II electron transport (Φ PS II) in… CONTINUE READING
