The effect of stepwise increments of red light intensities on pulse-amplitude modulated (PAM) chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence from leaves of A. thaliana and Z. mays was investigated. Minimum and maximum fluorescence were measured before illumination (F (0) and F (M), respectively) and at the end of each light step ([Formula: see text] and [Formula: see text], respectively). Calculated [Formula: see text] values derived from F (0), F (M) and [Formula: see text] fluorescence according to Oxborough and Baker (1997) were lower than the corresponding measured [Formula: see text] values. Based on the concept that calculated [Formula: see text] values are under-estimated because the underlying theory ignores PSI fluorescence, a method was devised to gain relative PSI fluorescence intensities from differences between calculated and measured [Formula: see text]. This method yields fluorometer-specific PSI data as its input data (F (0), F (M), [Formula: see text] and [Formula: see text]) depend solely on the spectral properties of the fluorometer used. Under the present conditions, the PSI contribution to F (0) fluorescence was 0.24 in A. thaliana and it was independent on the light acclimation status; the corresponding value was 0.50 in Z. mays. Correction for PSI fluorescence affected Z. mays most: the linear relationship between PSI and PSII photochemical yields was clearly shifted toward the one-to-one proportionality line and maximum electron transport was increased by 50 %. Further, correction for PSI fluorescence increased the PSII reaction center-specific parameter, 1/F (0) - 1/F (M), up to 50 % in A. thaliana and up to 400 % in Z. mays.
