Light and Pigments
An Introduction to Photobiology

Goals and Objectives:
This is a good review chapter that goes over some of the basics of light energy and the plant pigments that can respond to light energy.  Although I will not have exam questions that directly from this chapter, the information will be useful to your understanding of photobiology.

Study Questions:
  1.     Physical Nature of Light
  2.     Absorption and fate of light energy
  3.     Absorption and action spectra
  4.     Measuring light
  5.     The natural radiation environment
  6. Photoreceptors
