Mechanisms of photo- and antioxidative protection, the extent of oxidative stress, and salicylic acid accumulation in leaves of Phillyrea angustifolia L. (Oleaceae) plants exposed to drought and recovery in Mediterranean field conditions were studied. The amounts of α-tocopherol increased up to 4-fold and those of zeaxanthin increased up to 3-fold at relative leaf water contents (RWCs) of ca. 60%, which caused up to 70% increases in the de-epoxidation state of the xanthophyll cycle (DPS).
