Spectral sensitivity of the flowering response in green and etiolated lemna paucicostata t 101






Plant & Cell Physiology 21(7): 1335-1338

Spectral sensitivity of the flowering response in green and etiolated lemna paucicostata t 101

Light sensitivity in the reversal of the far-red inhibition of flowering in etiolated L. paucicostata T-101 was 10- (612 nm) to 33-fold (660 nm) higher than that of green plants. The action spectrum of this response for etiolated plants had a peak near 660 nm but for green plants it was near 612 nm. The effect of light on flowering may be influenced greatly by the screening effect of photosynthetic pigments.
