A survey of photosynthetic pigments, including 86 species from 64 families, was conducted for leaves of neotropical vascular plants to study sun-shade patterns in carotenoid biosynthesis and occurrence ofa-carotene (a-Car) and lutein epoxide (Lx).Under low light, leaves invested less in structural components andmore in light harvesting, asmanifested by low leaf dry mass per area (LMA) and enhanced mass-based accumulation of chlorophyll (Chl) and carotenoids, especially lutein and neoxanthin… CONTINUE READING
