In its simplest form, this involves the membrane surrounding the cell itself. These reactions occur in two stages: These two geniuses also discovered 14C, an isotope of carbon, which has since been extensively used to carbon date fossils and ancient artifacts.
These pigments are embedded in plants and algae in complexes called antenna proteins. Unfortunately, modern civilization is using up in a few centuries the excess of photosynthetic production accumulated over millions of years.
The food substances are usually quickly translocated, those that accumulate being changed to starch, which appears in the cells almost simultaneously with the sugars.
All plants without a chlorophyll apparatus, as the fungi, must be parasitic or saprophytic. Sixteen thousand species of plants use CAM.
