Abstract

Excess irradiance can reduce the quantum yield of photosynthesis via photoprotective energy dissipation, inactivation or downregulation of PSII. We examined variation in photoprotection as part of a study of adaptive radiation in photosynthetic light responses by Hawaiian lobeliads. We measured the maximum efficiency of PSII (Fv/Fm) and recovery of F v/Fm after high light stress in field populations of 11 lobeliad species and in four species growing under common-garden greenhouse conditions. Species showed no difference in Fv/Fm (0.82:±:0.02 (mean:±:s.e.)) or in their ability to recover from light stress under field conditions. Average recovery was 74:±:1.4% within 1:h of removal of the stress suggesting that all species maintain the ability to recover from high light stress, at least in the short-term. In contrast, the results from the common-garden indicate that long-term exposure to high irradiance and associated higher temperatures can cause a sustained reduction in PSII function. Species showed decreased Fv/Fm and percentage recovery as treatment irradiance increased. Fv/F m and percentage recovery were positively related to native habitat PFD across species, suggesting that there has been a diversification in high light tolerance, with species from sunnier environments better able to avoid sustained declines in PSII function.
