High pressure effect on photosynthetic properties of green plant leaves

High pressure effect on photosynthetic properties of green plant leaves We investigated the effects of high pressure treatment on green plant leaves of two species, red rose (Rosa rubiginosa L.) and silver birch male (Betula pendula Roth). Both species were treated with pressure up to 100 bar in order to explore stress reactions, including desirable or undesirable metabolites in plant. When increasing the pressure, chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence maximum shifts to the wavelength of about 680 nm for both red rose and silver birch, with shift rates–0.062 nm/bar and–0.082 nm/bar, respectively. High pressure induces the changes of the position for the second fluorescence maximum at approximately 730 nm in both species with the same shift rate–0.083 nm/bar. When increasing pressure the change of the photosynthetic apparatus efficiency decreases for both plant species slowly and nonlinearly. High-pressure treatments irreversibly damaged the leaf tissue and at this way induced changes of Chl fluorescence and photosynthetic efficiency. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
