The best light spectrum for plant cultivation: a source of colourful arguments

Pedro J. Aphalo, Titta K Kotilainen

Subjects: Agriculture, Food Science, Life Sciences

In this review we discuss the different factors affecting the use efficiency of light considering quantum properties of light, pigment light absorption, whole-leaf light absorption, the action spectrum of photosynthesis and allocation of biomass to leaf area, and how of these processes are regulated by the color of light.

An alternation between diploid and haploid phases is universal among sexual eukaryotes. Across this biphasic cycle, natural selection and sexual selection occur in both phases. Together, these four stages of selection act on the phenotypes of individuals and influence the evolutionary trajectories of populations, but are rarely studied holistically. Here, we provide a conceptual framework that [...]
