Acclimation by the photosynthetic system to the gradient in irradiance through a leaf canopy was investigated with a plot of lucerne (Medicago sativa L. cv. Aurora). The aims were to determine the extent to which acclimation occurred in a natural canopy and to quantify the changes in the partitioning of nitrogen within the leaf that are associated with acclimation. The canopy grew up around light sensors placed at 10 cm height increments which logged the irradiance at 1 min intervals for the 4… CONTINUE READING
