Latest Photosynthetic pigments Stories
A type of bacteria growing in a hot spring near Yellowstone National Park in Montana uses a previously unidentified process to harvest energy and produce oxygen from sunlight, according to new research published in a recent edition of the journal Science.
PARMAX™ Professional Series Hybrid LED Pro Panels excel in two critical lighting fundamentals for plants.
Aquatic algae can sense an unexpectedly wide range of color, allowing them to sense and adapt to changing light conditions in lakes and oceans.
A ring of protein and pigments, half synthetic and half natural, can be used to quickly prototype light-harvesting antennas that absorb more sunlight than fully natural ones
Optimum spectral output shows increased yield using LED plant grow lights. Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 08, 2013 TruLite LED has officially released their
Tru-Band™ Technology from TruLite LED lets growers increase profits by driving down operating costs by using LED grow lights. Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Pigments found in plants and purple bacteria employed to provide protection from sun damage do more than just that. Researchers from the University of Toronto and University of Glasgow have found that they also help to harvest light energy during photosynthesis.
An international team of biologists led by Indiana University's David M. Kehoe has identified both the enzyme and molecular mechanism critical for controlling a chameleon-like process that allows one of the world's most abundant ocean phytoplankton, once known as blue-green algae, to maximize light harvesting for photosynthesis.
Scientists have designed a screening tool that provides a fast, easy and relatively inexpensive way to predict levels of a specific toxin in lakes that are prone to blue-green algal blooms.
