Title: Changes in ultraviolet-B and visible optical properties and absorbing pigment concentrations in pecan leaves during a growing season

Author: Qi, Yadong; Bai, Shuju; Heisler, Gordon M.

Year: 2003

Publication: Agricultural and Forest Meteorology 120:229-240

Abstract: UV-B (280-320 nm) and visible (400-760 nm) spectral reflectance, transmittance, and absorptance; chlorophyll content; UV-B absorbing compound concentration; and leaf thickness were measured for pecan (Carya illinoensis) leaves over a growing season (April-October). Leaf samples were collected monthly from a pecan plantation located on the Southern University Horticultural Farm, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
