A late-night disco in the forest reveals tree performance

IMAGE: Research structure at Hyytiälä, Finland. view more  Credit: Weiwei Liu In 2017, the group from the Optics of Photosynthesis Lab (OPL) developed a new method to measure a small but important signal produced by all plants, and in this case trees. This signal is a called chlorophyll fluorescence and it is an emission of radiation at the visible and near-infrared wavelengths. Chlorophyll fluorescence relates to…
