Oxygen evolution and chlorophyll a fluorescence transients of two barley (Hordeum vulgare L) cultivars subjected to polyethylene glycol induced osmotic stress was examined. The relative water content of the plants was used as a measure of their water status. The results suggested that although dehydration was considerable, photosystem 2 was weakly affected by the osmotic treatment.
