Abstract

We analyzed several approaches dealing with the components of non-photochemical energy dissipation and introduced improved versions of the equations used to calculate this parameter. The usage of these formulae depends on the conditions of the sample (acclimation to dark or irradiation, presence or absence of the “actinic light”). The parameter known as “excess” cannot be used as a component of energy partitioning. In reality, this parameter reflects the differences between potential and actual quantum yields of photochemistry.
