Some of the more frequent abiotic stresses in plants are limited availability of nutrients and water, as well as salinity. All these situations occur both in natural habitats and in crops. Stressed plants often experience decreases in photosynthetic rates, whereas they still harvest sunlight. Environmental stresses such as those may decrease the efficiency with which solar energy is harvested and used by plants in photosynthetic reactions. This feature is what the scientific community has often called photoinhibition. Some researchers tacitly assume that photoinhibition may result from photodamage, whereas others believe that it is more the integration of a series of regulatory and protective adjustments. The aim of this review is to summarize the current knowledge concerning photoinhibitionand photoprotection-related processes under nutrient deficiencies, drought, and salinity stress, and to discuss the role that photoinhibition could play under such environmental stresses.
