This booklet is devoted to foreign cooperation, knowing and peace. it's the outcome of numerous years of cooperative paintings among scientists of 3 international locations: the U.S., Germany, and Portugal. The paintings awarded, notwithstanding, attracts from a much wider base, expectantly reaching the target of NATO complicated learn Workshops, that have been demonstrated to permit and stimulate the alternate of latest rules and the synthesis of knowledge via scientists of NATO international locations. The initiatives of the workshop have been a number of; to study demonstrated methodologies that experience supplied perception into environment functionality and diversifications of crops in mediterranean weather zones; to ascertain new methodologies that experience lately been utilized in ecological reports and feature supplied new sorts of info; to summarize fresh reviews in mediterranean areas of plant water kin, photosynthesis and construction, mineral food, plant progress and improvement, and reaction to fireplace; to stimulate particularly an alternate of data between scientists of eu Mediterranean international locations; and to debate capability during which all of those ambitions may be much more successfully accomplished sooner or later via cooperative foreign examine efforts. This number of topics is obviously obtrusive within the format of the booklet. Held in Sesimbra, Portugal in October of 1985, the workshop happened in a ..

In Fig. 11 the effect of heat-pretreatment on the saturation pulse induction curves of Arbutus unedo is shown. It is apparent that (Fv>S (fluorescence measured in saturation pulses) is particularly sensitive to heat-pretreatment. In the control, a high level of (Fv>S, associated with low

Relationship of Q-quenching to assimilation rate at varying relative water contents in leaves of Arbutus unedo. Fluorescence and assimilation rate were measured simultaneously in a leaf disc electrode at high C02-concentration as described for Fig. 13. Relative water content is indicated in percent Desiccation decreases both oxygen evolution and Q-quenching in an approximate one to one relationship, confirming that qQ, as determined by the saturation pulse method, is a reliable measure of electron transport rate.

There may be only a few cases where stress causes damage which affects a single step in the photosynthetic chain of reactions. Nevertheless, fluorescence analysis is a rapid method. One therefore has the possibility of separating primary from secondary damage. In the following section examples are given for changes in fluorescence that occur in response to some of the major stress factors limiting photosynthetis of plants in their natural environments. HEAT STRESS Fluorescence methods have served as useful tools in the characterization of heatinduced changes of the photosynthetic apparatus (for review, see Krause and Weis 1984; Renger and Schreiber 1986).
