Plant bioelectric potential (BEPI variation was observed in actively photosynthesizing leaves of croton plant under natural light conditions. It was found to vary with the intensity of light. BEP reached a 'saturation' value in 4 to 4% hours time on upper surface of leaf, whereas 'saturation' occurred in 2 % hours for the lower surface of the leaf. The BEP of leaf exposed to sunlight was considerably higher than that of leaf covered. The BEP slowly declined after the 'saturation' value during midday and reached a minimum at midnight and early hours of the day. It is suggested here that BEP arises due to light dependent processes namely photosynthesis in plants
