Answer the following question.
What would have happened if plants did not have accessory pigments?
- Accessory pigments are light-absorbing molecules which are found in photosynthetic organisms.
- They transfer the absorbed light to chlorophyll-a and thus increasing the photosynthetic rate.
- In absence of accessory pigments, less amount of light will be absorbed and also there would be no protection provided to chlorophyll molecule from photo-oxidation.
