Photosynthesis and Fast Changes in Light Emission by Green Plants

  • Govindjee
  • Paul A. Jursinic

Abstract

The present chapter deals with a brief review of the process of green plant photosynthesis and with the fast emission (chlorophyll a fluorescence and delayed light) changes that have been used to probe the process of photosynthesis. In order to appreciate the latter, an understanding of overall photosynthesis is presented so that the reader may be able to place the fast-emission changes described in Sections 2 (fluorescence) and 3 (delayed light) in a broader framework.
