    Abstract: Light is very important for photosynthesis in plants. However, excess light can result in photodamage to the photosynthetic apparatus. Via nonphotochemical quenching (NPQ), the oxidative stress caused by excess light energy can be counteracted by photoprotective mechanisms that evolve photosynthetic/oxygenic organisms. Energy-dependent quenching (q... Show More

    Abstract: The characteristics of Nesogordonia papaverifera stemwood and branchwood were investigated. Within Ghana's middle belt, five mature trees with identical diameter at breast height were chosen. Mechanical characteristics and basic density were determined in accordance with British Standard BS 373 and ASTMD 2395, respectively. The IAWA list of microsc... Show More
