Producers are green plants. And these plants are green because of a pigment called 'Chlorophyll'. This pigment with the help of carbondioxide from air and sunlight creates food for the plant by a process call 'Photosynthesis'. All other living things in the food chain survive because of this natural ability (Photosynthesis) of plants.
The word green in environmental terms used in phrases such as green-tech comes from the colour of what biological chemical?
Depending on the plant species and the pH, a surprisingly large number of pigments may appear as red. The following, therefore, is not a full list. The first that comes to mind is lycopene, a carotenoid, that gives tomatoes their color. Carotene, a similar molecule, is red-orange. Anthocyanins can be purple or green, but may also be red given the right pH (acidic). Betacyanins are an alternative group of pigments with similar function and color…
