An Introduction to Chlorophyll Fluorescence

J. Harbinson, E. Rosenqvist

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Photosynthesis is a physiological process that couples the energy of light to certain metabolic changes in biochemical reactions, via photochemical processess. It is the purpose of this chapter to lay out the basic physical and physiological processess associated with this coupling and to show how the biochemical changes are linked to other physical processess that allow us to measure the operation and progress of the coupling of light-absorption to physiology
