Photosystems must efficiently dissipate absorbed light energy under freezing conditions. To clarify the energy dissipation mechanisms, we examined energy transfer and dissipation dynamics in needles of the evergreen plant Taxus cuspidata by time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. In summer and autumn, the energy transfer processes were similar to those… CONTINUE READING
