Image modified from the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis: figure 4, by openstax college, biology most photosynthetic organisms have a variety of different pigments, so they can absorb energy from a wide range of wavelengths. Research into the effects of increased plant cover is a reminder of the complexity of the systems that influence earth's climate long term experiment shows we've got it wrong on photosynthesis. Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development and evolution.
Photosynthesis is a process in which the energy of sunlight is captured to oxidize h 2 o and to generate chemical bond energy in the form of atp and reducing equivalents that can be used to fix inorganic carbon (co 2. Photosynthesis research is an international journal dealing with both basic and applied aspects of photosynthesis it covers all aspects of photosynthesis research, including light absorption and emission, excitation energy transfer, primary photochemistry, model systems, membrane components. Sunlight is the energy source for photosynthesis photons of light are captured and the energy is transferred to molecules in the plant cells that energy is then used to convert the inorganic compounds that contain little energy into organic compounds that contain a lot of energy that the plant can use.
