Strategies of light energy utilisation, dissipation and attenuation in six co-occurring alpine heath species in Tasmania



Strategies of light energy utilisation, dissipation and attenuation in six co-occurring alpine heath species in Tasmania



Functional Plant Biology 30(12): 1205-1218



Alpine environments are characterised by low temperatures and high light intensities. This combination leads to high light stress owing to the imbalance between light energy harvesting and its use in photochemistry. In extreme cases, high light stress can lead to the level of photo-oxidative damage exceeding the rate of repair to the photosynthetic apparatus.
