Light Quality and Irradiance Level Interaction in Control of Chloroplast Development.
The processes of greening and plant development are now reasonably understood from a descriptive point of view. That is, some whole plant and chloroplast developmental responses and their regulatory signals and cues are documented. It is known that photoreceptors initiate and continually regulate the developmental process and that the interaction of different photoreceptors with one another depends on the quality and irradiance level of light and on the stage of tissue development.
