Rate constants k1 Pr -> Pfr; k2 Pfr -> Pr; photoconversion rate nu = k1 + k2 for Type I Phytochrome.

Phy_reaction_rates(w.length, s.irrad, unit.in = "energy",
  check.spectrum = TRUE, use.cached.mult = FALSE)

Arguments

w.length

numeric array of wavelength (nm)

s.irrad

numeric array of spectral (energy) irradiances (W m-2 nm-1) or (mol s-1 m-2)

unit.in

character string with allowed values "energy", and "photon", or its alias "quantum"

check.spectrum

logical indicating whether to sanity check input data, default is TRUE

use.cached.mult

logical indicating whether multiplier values should be cached between calls

Value

a list of three numeric values giving the photoconversion rate (nu) and reaction rates (k1, k2).
