- ... The influence of the growth photon flux density (PFD) on the size and composition of the carotenoid pool and the size of the reduced ascorbate pool was determined across a light gradient from the forest floor to the canopy and the forest edge of a sub-tropical rainforest in New South Wales, Australia. Nineteen plant species (most collected from multiple sites) representing a broad taxonomic range ...

- ... Thermal acclimation and photoacclimation of photosynthesis were compared in Laminaria saccharina sporophytes grown at temperatures of 5 and 17 degrees C and irradiances of 15 and 150 micromol photons m-2 s-1. When measured at a standard temperature (17 degrees C), rates of light-saturated photosynthesis (Pmax) were higher in 5 degrees C-grown algae (c. 3.0 micromol O2 m-2 s-1) than in 17 degrees C ...
