Working on the action spectrum  for the pigments of Chlorella (a green alga), they found that at 440-520 nm, there was very little evolution of oxygen. This is quite understandable because those wavelengths of light are absorbed by carotenoids and …

Mechanism of Photosynthesis

Mechanism of Photosynthesis Plant Physiology Plant physiology deals with the studies of life processes that are similar in many organisms. Thousands of chemical reactions are underway in every living cell transferring water, mineral salts and gases from the environment into organized plant tissue. Plants are also endowed with the property of photosynthesizing, a unique feature …
