Coffee is native to shady environments, but often grows and yields better without shade. Thus, it may be reasoned that coffee leaves should display enough plasticity to acclimate themselves to contrasting light environments. However, little is known about mechanisms associated with such plasticity in coffee. This work aimed, therefore, to explore differences in leaf photoprotective mechanisms. Plants were grown in the field and received either 48 or 100% natural light. Evaluations were made… CONTINUE READING
