About the Plant Photobiology Notes



The Plant Photobiology Notes is a collection of notes and "bookmarks" with information on the effects of visible and ultraviolet radiation on plants, and on methods and equipment used for studying these effects. Some additional links to WWW pages with useful information for those working on plant eco-physiology and photobiology can be also found in my home page.

These pages include both pages prepared by me and links to pages available elsewhere in the Internet. If you know of any useful pages within this subject area, please e-mail me their URLs. I will check them and if I like them I will add links to them to these pages.

I update these pages from time to time, adding new information and fixing all the broken links I find (an almost impossible task). All important changes are logged in the noticeboard. I started this pages in 1995, and they have changed a lot since them.

If you want to ask questions, suggest changes to the pages, or suggest additions or deletions from the list of suggested reading, please send an e-mail message to me.

If you find any errors, things that you like or dislike, please do not hesitate to send an e-mail message to me. Thanks in advance for your help, and I hope you find these pages useful.

A Technical Note

I have been editing the HTML files with WinEdt for many years, but I have switched now to Adobe GoLive.

These pages conform to HTML 4.0. They have been HTML-syntax validated, according to their DOCTYPE tag using the validator at the W3 organization.

Valid HTML 4.0!

They have been tested thoroughly only with Firefox 3.

There are some files in Acrobat's PDF format. In most cases I am generating them directly with PDFLaTeX (from the MikTeX package), but I also use Acrobat distiller and Acrobat Exchange for processing them.

Most plots of data have been produced with Origin and post-processed with Adobe Illustrator, and other drawings directly created with Adobe Illustrator. Older GIF and JPEG figures were produced with an assortment of programs, but I am currently using mostly Adobe Photoshop. Many of the icons and decorations were downloaded from public archives on the Internet.

I have kept most pages simple, with just a few decorative graphs, and as far as possible short. At the moment inline graphs are in GIF and JPEG formats. Please e-mail any comments to the author. I am not the webmaster, as this pages are at the moment located in a server of the computer centre of the University of Helsinki.


The file spiral.gif was created by Andrew Miller for another site, it is not copyrighted and is used with the author's knowledge. Thanks Andrew! Icons are from icon archives on the web. The names of their authors are unknown to me, but the sites from which they were downloaded advertised them as "not copyrighted". The icons for specific software are used according to the the rules set by the owners of copyright on them. Some of the free icons including spiral.gif have been touched up by myself.
