Paper Abstract

The different photosynthetic and morphological characteristics of C3 and C4 plants may lead to distinct physiological responses of C3 and C4 crops to stress factors. These responses are strongly correlated with the red edge of these plants, the s-shaped curve in the 680-800nm region of their reflectance spectra. We performed controlled in silico experiments to investigate the patterns of the red edge displacements resulting from C3 and C4 specimens subjected to the same stress conditions. Our findings indicate these patterns need to be taken into account in the development of effective monitoring procedures for C3 and C4 crops.
