Plant responses to light are multiple. Light is an energy source, converted to sugars by photosynthesis. It is also a signal sensed by specific photoreceptors for red, blue and UV-B radiation. Absence of light leads to a developmental program called etiolation. Excess of light constitutes a form of abiotic stress.
