The purpose of this study was to clarify effects of anthocyanins on photosynthesis and photoinhibition in green and red leaves of Oxalis triangularis. Gas analysis indicated that green plants had the highest apparent quantum yield for CO2 assimilation [0.051 vs. 0.031 μmol(CO2) μmol−1(photon)] and the highest maximum photosynthesis [10.07 vs. 7.24 μmol(CO2) m−2 s−1], while fluorescence measurements indicated that red plants had the highest PSII quantum yield [0.200 vs. 0.143 μmol(e−) μmol−1… Expand
