In this studies we used classical and laser methods for cyanobacteria diagnostics: Fluorescence Induction and Relaxation and Non-Linear Laser Fluorimetry in order to obtain the whole set of photophysical parameters of cyanobacteria. Different photophysical processes that take place in photosynthetic apparatus of cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 were studied with mentioned above fluorescent methods and sets of photophysical parameters were determined. The results allow us to suggest a model of photo adaptation processes under excess irradiance (depending on light intensity and spectrum).
