Abstract

Low temperature may cause a severe decrease in the photosynthesising ability, especially in chilling-sensitive plants. The chlorophyll fluorescence induction technique provides a non-destructive method for investigating the photosynthetic apparatus of plants. Partly due to a technical improvement over the last decade, this technique has become a widely used method in basic and applied research. This study discusses the effects of one of the most important crop limiting factors, low temperature stress, on a number of chlorophyll fluorescence induction parameters in the fast and slow phases of the fluorescence induction curve, on quenching components and on the F685/F730 ratio. The investigations covered both the temperature dependence of the chlorophyll fluorescence induction parameters and the effect of low temperature stress and low temperature-induced photoinhibition on these parameters.
