I have developed miniature data loggers that respond to the blue,
red and far-red wavelengths to which green plants respond. These
loggers will be used in an ongoing study in Texas, Hawaii and an
East Coast site. I would be most appreciative of receiving a
reference to or an actual tabulated listing of a representative
action spectrum and/or absorption spectrum for chlorophyll-a
and/or any other light-sensitive pigments in plants. Of course I
will acknowledge the original source of such data in any
For now I am using absorption spectra of sumac leaves.
Thank you for your assistance.
