ABSTRACT SPECTRAL data provides the information to quantify the photosynthetic and morphogenic responses of plants to a specific radiation environment. The mathematical products of spectral data with photosynthetic quantum yield and phytochrome photochemical cross-sections were used as indicators of the photosynthetic efficiency and phytochrome photostationary state determined by a radiation source.
