Abstract

Bright light induces photoinhibition of photosynthesis. When plants are subjected to chilling temperature, symptoms of photoinhibition are often observed to appear even in moderate light (for a review, see öquist & al.1). It is often thought, that the role of low temperature is only to accelerate photoinhibition. In this study, we distinguish between high light induced photoinhibition and the inhibition caused by the combination of low temperature and light.
