Evaluation for Photosynthetic Characteristics in upland cotton germplasm based on chlorophyll a fluorescence [post]

2020 unpublished
The research of photosynthetic characteristics of germplasm resources of cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum L.) provides reference for genetic improvement on cotton cultivars. Chlorophyll a fluorescence (CF) is widely used for analysis of photosynthetic activity of plants leaves. However, large number of Chlorophyll a fluorescence parameters (CFPs) and inconsistency CFPs application in different studies confuse researchers, which greatly limit the accuracy of photosynthesis analysis. In this study,

Results: 9 CFPs including PI(abs), DIo/CSo, PI(abs, total), Sm/T, Vj, Eto/CSo, REo/CSo, RC/CSo and N at 12:00 and 8 CFPs including PI(abs, total), PI(abs), DIo/CSo, Sm/T, REo/CSo, N, Vj and Eto/CSo at 17:00 are suitable for screening of upland cotton cultivars (strains). The screened CFPs classify and evaluate the photosynthetic characteristics of upland cotton cultivars (strains). Conclusions: CFPs selected can be effect and consistent parameters to evaluate photosynthetic activity of cotton germplasm.
