Paper Abstract

Experimental investigations of the fluorescence intensity of plants in red and ultraviolet spectral ranges induced by the laser radiation have been carried out during one year. Dependence of the quantum yield of chlorophyll a fluorescence on plant species has been established and investigated. The largest range of seasonal variations of the fluorescence intensity was observed for the deciduous trees. Seasonal variations of the florescence intensity have the tendency to insignificant variations for the coniferous trees. Application of the fluorescence method to the remote specific categorization of the plant tissue and determination of the chlorophyll content is shown to be promising.
