Why are thylakoids green?

Well thylakoids organize chloraphyll and other pigments within the membrane of the thylakoid. Chloraphyll is a green pigment so that affects the pigment of the thylakoid. I h (MORE)

What takes place in the thylakoid?

The light-dependent reactions. Where NADP+ is made into NADPH and ADP is made into ATP, which is later used by the Calvin Cycle to make sugar.
