Applications of Chlorophyll Fluorescence in Understanding Plant Performance (Hardcover) (Mohamed H.
about this item
Chlorophyll a fluorescence is a tool for evaluating plant responses to stress conditions. Fluorescence can be used in plant phenotyping and breeding programs to monitor stresses including mineral deficiencies, soil salinity, and pathogenic diseases. This book reviews a diversity of instruments available for recording and analyzing all types of light signals from plants. Chapters in the book cover photosynthesis, chlorophyll a fluorescence, measurements of fast fluorescent transients (JIP tests), delayed fluorescence in photosynthesis, measurements of light scattering, and examples of applications of chlorophyll a fluorescence in plant research.
