types of chlorophyll - basic question (Jun/10/2006 )

When a paper shows that a control plant and a treated one have different content of chlorophyll a, b and the sum of both, what does that means? I mean, what is the physiological explanation for those differences? What kind of info can I get if I know, for example, that two plants have different amount of chlorophyll b? Thanks!!


first check of wavelength absorbtion and you'll see more
btw your post has been moved in homework forum.


so in order to peak your curiosity,

since light can be in different wavelengths having chlorophyll that abosorb at different specra would be advantagous from an energy production point of few, as it allows the plant to maximise the available light and convert it into energy
