Sargassum patens

In the present article, the diurnal change of photosynthetic efficiency of a temperate brown alga, Sargassum patens (Fucales) was determined by underwater measurements in the habitat. Furthermore, at the low temperature environment, photosynthetic efficiency was dropped under the relatively high irradiance environment, suggesting that occurrence of photoinhibition with the chilling-light stress.
