Use of Chlorophyll Fluorescence Induction Kinetics in the µs- to s-Range for Classification of Damage to Forests

Conference paper

Abstract

The µs-component of the fluorescence induction kinetics provides information about the antenna of the photosynthetic system. As shown by investigations on spruce, oak, birch and poplar, the µs-component is influenced by the change of exterior conditions and the damage of the trees.

Zusammenfassung

Die µs-Komponenten der Fluoreszenz-Induktionskinetik liefert eine Aussage über die Antenne des Photosynthesesystems. Wie Messungen an Fichte, Eiche, Birke und Pappel zeigen, wird die µs-Komponente durch Änderungen von äußeren Bedingungen und die Schädigung der Bäume beeinflußt.
