Temperature affects the total amount, the time course, and the red/far-red effectiveness ratio of light-dependent anthocyanin production in Brassica oleracea L. seedlings. Some of the effects of temperature on anthocyanin production in cabbage are in agreement with the predictions of a model proposed by JK Wall and CB Johnson (1983 Planta 159: 387-397) for the effects of temperature on the state of phytochrome and on the expression of phytochrome-mediated high irradiance responses, but others are not. The lack of a complete agreement between experimental results and model predictions might be due to factors related to the experimental system used or to limitations of the model or both.
