Researchers develop novel method to determine how much light a plant can tolerate


According to a recent report from Queen Mary, University of London, researchers have devised a new method to measure how much light a plant can tolerate – a useful tool in growing hearty crops that are resistant to potentially devastating climate changes. 

“This is the first time we have been able to quantify a plant’s ability to protect itself against high light intensity,” said Professor Alexander Ruban, coauthor of the study and Head of the Cell and Molecular Biology Division at Queen Mary’s School of Biological and Chemical Science.
