Photoinhibition in seedlings of Fraxinus and Fagus under natural light conditions: implications for forest regeneration?

  title={Photoinhibition in seedlings of Fraxinus and Fagus under natural light conditions: implications for forest regeneration?},
  author={Katrina S. Einhorn and Eva Rosenqvist and Jerry W. Leverenz},
Ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) and beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) seedlings were grown in the field under three levels of natural light: (1) open, (2) gap and (3) shade. Light acclimation of photosynthesis was characterized by means of modulated chlorophyll a fluorescence of intact leaves and growth parameters were measured at the end of the growing season. Measurements of maximum photochemical efficiency (F v/F m) of dark-adapted leaves at intervals through the day showed that ash had a higher F v/F… CONTINUE READING
