Title:Photoprotection in Plants [electronic resource] : Optical Screening-based Mechanisms
Author(s): Alexei Solovchenko
Date:2010
Edition:First
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Optical screening of excessive and potentially harmful solar radiation is an important photoprotective mechanism, though it has received much less attention in comparison with other systems preventing photooxidative damage tophotoautotrophic organism s. This photoprotection in the form of screening appears to be especially important for juvenile and senescing plants as well as under environmental stressesi.e. in situations where the efficiency ofenzymatic ROS elimination, DNA repair and other classica l photoprotective systems could be impaired. This book represents an attempt to develop an integral view of optical screening-based photoprotection in microalgae and higherplants. Towards this end, the key groups of pigments involved in the screening of u ltraviolet and visible components of solar radiation in microalgae and higher plants, and the patterns of their accumulation and distribution withinplant cells and tissues, are described. Special attention is paid to the manifestations of screening pigmen t accumulation in the optical spectra of plants. It is also demonstrated that understanding these effects and theirrelationships to screening pigments makeup and spectroscopy in plants provides valuable insights into the state of plants long-term photoacc limation, as well as ample opportunities for the non-destructive quantification ofscreening pigments and the assessment of the efficiency of photoprotection providing by these pigments in situ
