Leaves of overwintering evergreen rhododendrons are typically exposed to freezing temperatures and high light during winters which can potentially result in photon flux exceeding that required for photochemistry. This excess energy, if not dissipated as heat or fluorescence, may cause photooxidative damage to PSII. The goal of this study is to compare the photoprotection strategies during seasonal cold acclimation (CA) in two Rhododendron species (R. catawbiense Michx. and R. ponticum L.) that… CONTINUE READING
