Photomorphogenesis

It is the branch of physiology deals with the morphological changes due to the effect of light.

Photoceceptors: Pigments that absorb light for the use of physiological process. Various types of pigments are responsible for the photomorphogenesis process:

  1. Phycobilins
  2. Carotenoids
  3. Cryptochrome
  4. UV-B Receptors
  5. Flavonoids
  6. Betacyanins
  7. Phytochrome
