  • Compare And Contrast Plant Pigment By Shirley Raps And Jeffrey Harborne

    In “Plant Pigment,” by Shirley Raps and Jeffrey Harborne, two types of plant pigments are discussed: photosynthetic and nonphotosynthetic pigments. Photosynthetic pigments are responsible for absorbing light and transferring energy during photosynthesis. Among this group of pigments are chlorophylls, phycobilins, carotenoids, and reaction center pigments which causes plants’ green, blue, yellow and orange colors, respectively. Nonphotosynthetic pigments are used to attract insects for…
