Table 1 Comparison of photosynthetic characteristics (Pmax—photon-saturated photosynthetic rate; AQY—apparent quantum yield; LSP—light saturation point; LCP—light compensation point; Rd—dark respiration rate) of Liriope muscari grown under high (HI), medium (MI) and low (LI) incident PAR in two groups

From: Photosynthetic performance and growth responses of Liriope muscari (Decne.) L.H. Bailey (Asparagaceae) planted within poplar forests having different canopy densities
