. Decreases in efficiency of PSII often are thought to be caused by an applied stress that has damaged the photosynthetic apparatus. This results in reduced efficiency of light transfer in photosynthetic electron transport ( Maxwell and Johnson, 2000

tetraploid induction in our study, can be considered a measure of the quantum efficiency of the electron transport in photosystem II. Negative correlation between photosynthetic rate and ploidy was observed in other works ( Knight et al., 2005 ; Wullschleger
