The role of gibberellins in plant morphology under selective light was studied. A comparison of the effects of green and blue light on growth, development, and hormonal balance was performed for two Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. (ecotype Landsberg erecta lines: wild type Ler and its ga4-1 mutant with suppressed GA4/1 synthesis. The absence of active GA4/1 from ga4-1 mutant determined its retarded growth, slowed passing through developmental phases, suppressed apical dominance, and reduced seed productivity. The retarded growth and development of the mutant was related to changed hormonal balance in them as compared to wild-type line: IAA content and the IAA/ABA ratio were declined, zeatin riboside and ABA accumulated. Green light retarded stem elongation and branching, reduced leaf specific surface density and plant seed productivity, and retarded plant transition to reproduction to a greater degree at GA4/1 deficit (ga4-1) than at its normal content (Ler).
