I don't know the full details of how spectral response curves are measured. My very basic understanding is that reflectance is measured, as is transmittance (through the leaf), but I'm under the impression that useful information can be gained simply by determining which types of chlorophyll are present, since the spectral response curves of the different types have been worked out. Florescence also plays a role, though more so in reef corals than in terrestrial plants, I think.

Hopefully one or more of our resident plant gurus chime in soon with hard facts.
