The kinetics and temperature dependencies of development and relaxation of light-induced absorbance changes caused by deepoxidation of violaxanthin to antheraxanthin and zeaxanthin (ΔZ; peak at 506 nm) and by light scattering (ΔS; peak around 540 nm) as well as of nonphotochemical quenching of chlorophyll fluorescence (NPQ) were followed in cotton leaves… CONTINUE READING
