AbstractPhotoprotection is a crucial ability that allows plants to live under stressful environments. Plants develop structural and chemical mechanisms of photoprotection to preserve their photosystems from light excess. We studied the photo-protective strategy and its physiological consequences in tara (Caesalpinia spinosa), a legume tree endemic of South America, showing the adaptative trait of closing leaflets under stressful conditions. Tara has a significant ecological and economic value thriving in many different ecosystems from semiarid shrub-lands to agricultural areas and dry or fog forests.
