    In this thesis several aspects of photoinhibition have been studied. Photoinhibition of PS II was studied, both on a basic (biophysical and biochemical) level and on a more integrated (eco)physiological level. The results of the different approaches were integrated and discussed with respect to the mechanism of photoinhibition of the leaf under light stress. Depending on the questions raised, isolated PS II particles, thylakoids, chloroplasts, protoplasts and intact leaves of field lettuce (Valerianella locusta) and/or spinach (Spinacia oleracea) have been used. ...ZieL Summary
