The results of field and numerical experiments devoted to the study of the chlorophyll fluorescence spatial gradient in the plant leaf volume are presented. It is shown for the first time that the continual UV radiation of an exiplex lamp can serve as an efficient source of inducing the process of the spontaneous fluorescence of the leaf photosystem. The computational estimates made by the Monte Carlo method confirm the fact that reabsorption processes are the basic cause of the transformation of the induced spectrum of fluorescence emission during the passing of radiation through the leaf volume.
