ODC 164.5: 161(485j[-174.7 Pinus sylvestris + 174.7 Picea abies] The influence of growing conditions upon the pignzentation in needles from xeedlings o f Scots pine and Norway spruce has been studied. The plant material was grown either in the open or in plastic greenhouses. The greenhouses were covered with plastic during the vegetation periods from May to August, and during the rest of the year the 'greenhouse' grown seedlings were exposed fo otitdoor conditions. A pronounced seasoizal… 
How long can young Scots pine seedlings survive waterlogging?
TLDR
Waterlogging reduced germination, but an increase in time between sowing and waterlogging of up to 3 weeks and a watertable >4 cm below the surface greatly improved germination and seedling growth.
An analysis of needle yellowing in healthy and chlorotic Norway spruce(Picea abies) in a forest decline area of the Fichtelgebirge(N.E. Bavaria)
TLDR
Chlorophyll formation ceased in the older needle age classes of chlorotic trees when the new flush was sprouting, indicating that nutritional deficiencies affect needle yellowing more than possible direct needle damage by air pollutants.
Ultrastructure of the mesophyll in scots pine and Norway spruce: Seasonal variation and molarity of the fixative buffer
TLDR
Resolution of the ultrastructure of the needles of both Scots pine and Norway spruce is strongly influenced by the molarity of the buffer used in fixation, and with good resolution the tannin in the central vacuole appears in granular form throughout the year, the cytoplasm and its organelles are clearly distinguishable during every season.
Modifications in Photosynthetic Pigments and Chlorophyll Fluorescence in 20-Year-Old Pine Trees after a Four-Year Exposure to Carbon Dioxide and Temperature Elevation
TLDR
The pigment and fluorescence responses in the case of ECT showed a similar pattern to that for ET, implying the importance of the temperature factor in future climate changes in the boreal zone.
Soil temperature, gas exchange and nitrogen status of 5-year-old Norway spruce seedlings.
TLDR
Five-year-old Norway spruce seedlings were subjected to three simulated growing seasons in controlled environment chambers and total chlorophyll concentration first decreased and then increased, although the rate of increase and the final concentration increased with soil temperature, which may explain the effect of soil temperature on A.
Fractionated extraction and speciation of macronutrients from Scots pine and Norway spruce needles of different ages
SummaryThe relationship between proteins and the macroelements potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulphur and phosphorus was studied in homogenates of needles of different ages from Scots pine (Pinus
Breeding for Climate Change Resilience: A Case Study of Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) in North America
TLDR
This review summarizes the strengths and shortcomings of previous work in the areas of genetic variation related to cold and drought stress in forest species with particular emphasis on loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.), the most-planted tree species in North America.
Recovery from winter depression of photosynthesis in pine and spruce
SummaryRecovery from winter depression of photosynthesis was studied in Pinus sylvestris, Pinus conforta and Picea abies by means of chlorophyll fluorescence and gas exchange measurements. During the
Seasonal biochemical changes in three species of liverwort Plagiochasma of Mandi (Himachal Pradesh), India
TLDR
It is concluded that the seasonal changes in Plagiochasma induced alterations in the biochemical compounds and in the activities of related enzymes that may be responsible for the adaptation of these plants in their natural habitats.
Assessing photosynthetic downregulation in sunflower stands with an optically-based model
TLDR
It is suggested that xanthophyll cycle pigment activity and net carbon uptake are coordinately regulated, allowing assays of Photosystem II activity to reveal changing rates of net assimilation.

Photosynthetic Action Spectra of Scots Pine Needles of Different Ages from Seedlings Grown under Different Nursery Conditions
Photosynthetic action spectra of pine needles have been measured with an automatic recording method. A thin longitudinal cut from the flat surface of the needle was placed on top of an oxygen sensor
Assimilatory pigments in cotyledons of four species of pine seedlings grown in darkness and in light
TLDR
Dark-grown pine seedlings synthesized not only chlorophylls but also considerable amounts of carotenoids, which means that relatively more carotyledons are synthesized in the absence of light.
Seasonal Variations of the Photosynthetic Efficiency of Evergreen Conifers
TLDR
It was postulated in this study that photosynthetic efficiency, or capacity, varies throughout the year as do the degree of cold hardiness, the nature and concentration of food reserves, and many other physiological characteristics.
The effects of temperature and light on the carotenoids of seedlings grown from three corn hybrids.
TLDR
The results obtained support the interesting possibility that the carotenoids are chemically involved in metabolic functions in green leaves, and suggest that these two pigments were either interconvertible or formed from a common precursor.
THE EFFECT OF LOW TEMPERATURE ON DRY MATTER PRODUCTION, CHLOROPHYLL CONCENTRATION AND PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF MAIZE PLANTS OF DIFFERENT AGES*
TLDR
It can be shown that the day temperature is the important factor in influencing the chlorophyll concentration in growing leaf parts and the data suggest that photosynthesis rate is reduced at concentrations ofchlorophyll (a+b) below 40μg per cm-2.
Variations in Chlorophyll Concentration in the Foliage of Radiata Pine
SUMMARY The concentration of chlorophyll in radiata pine (Pinus radiata D.Don) needles varied considerably along their length. The variation was least over the central third of fully-developed
Height growth and foliage color in a Scotch pine provenance study in northern Michigan
A Scotch pine provenance study conducted in northern Michigan revealed important differences in height growth and foliage color among seedlings from 83 European sources. Seed from southern European
CO2 enriched air increased growth of conifer seedlings.
TLDR
CO2 enriched atmospheres might profitably be used for the short term propagation of tree seedlings grown in greenhouses.
Adaptations in Pigment Composition and Photosynthesis by Far Red Radiation in Chlorella pyrenoidosa
TLDR
Chlorella pyrenoidosa adapted to the extreme light conditions by an increase both in absorption and photosynthesis above 700 nm, and it is proposed that som of the in vivo normal chlorophyll a forms were converted to a far red absorbing chlorophyLL a form, giving the far red exposed suspension an increased photosynthetic activity.
ROLE OF CAROTENOIDS IN PROTECTING CHLOROPHYLL FROM PHOTODESTRUCTION—II. STUDIES ON THE EFFECT OF FOUR MODIFIERS OF THE ALBINO cl1 MUTANT OF MAIZE *
TLDR
Analysis of plastid pigments reveals that the albino possesses the ability to produce as much or more chlorophyll than normal siblings and that this ability is not impaired by the presence of the modifier genes.
