Red light initiates many important morphogenetic responses in plants through the mediation of the pigment, phytochrome. How phytochrome promotes photomor-phogenesis is unknown. The evidence that photoactivated phytochrome initiates calcium fluxes in cells is reviewed and how these fluxes could regulate several known red-light induced effects in plants is discussed.
