/water used or ET. Leaf discs were collected using a cork borer from the four largest leaves of each plant to measure relative water content (RWC), SLA, succulence, chlorophyll content, and nutritional values. SLA was calculated as: SLA = leaf area/DW ( Evans

all photons absorbed by chlorophyll and accessory pigments are used to drive the light reactions. Excess absorbed photons can cause damage within the chloroplast. The reaction center of PSII, particularly the D1 protein, is highly susceptible to light

scheduling. Nitrogen is an essential element for plant growth and determines plant quality by affecting leaf weight, leaf area, leaf chlorophyll content, plant size, and transpiration rate ( Bar-Tal et al., 2001 ; Van Iersel et al., 1998a , 1998b

genes can help to minimize the public concerns about the impact of transgene expression on food safety in nontargeted storage roots. Light-harvesting chlorophyll a/b binding protein promoters are an important source for leaf-specific promoters ( Churin

, leaves had higher chlorophyll content than leaves of plants grown in the sun ( Lance and Guy, 1992 ; Reyes et al., 1996 ). The leaf thickness of Pelargonium × hortorum was reduced by increasing temperatures from 10 °C to 32 °C ( Armitage et al., 1981

A chlorophyll deficiency expressed as yellowing of leaves was observed in hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) progenies. Segregation ratios approximated 3 green: 1 yellow, indicating control by a single recessive gene designated chlorophyll deficient #1, for which the symbol c, is proposed. `Barcelona', `Butler', `Compton', `Lansing', Willamette', and the ornamental selection `Redleaf #3' are heterozygous. Pedigree analysis strongly suggests that all heteroxygotes inherited the recessive allele from `Barcelona'. A cross of `Barcelona' with the yellow-leafed ornamental Corylus avellana L. var. aurea Kirchn. produced no yellow-leafed seedlings, indicating that the chlorophyll deficiencies from these two sources are controlled by different loci. Progenies segregating simultaneously for this trait and the gene controlling presence of anthocyanin indicated that the two traits are inherited independently. Seedlings deficient in chlorophyll but with anthocyanin were able to survive under field conditions, while leaves of yellow-leafed seedlings lacking anthocyanin became scorched and the trees died.
