The suggestion made by Hindman et al. that the decrease in fluorescence yield of chrorophyll a in vivo as a function of laser pulse intensity may be due to stimulated emission and/or excited state absorption effects, is examined critically. It is concluded that the contributions of these effects in previous picosecond pulse experiments is negligible.
