From Microstructure to Macrostructure and Function in thePhotochemical Apparatus

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A discussion is presented of the macrostructure of the chloroplast insofar as it is known and knowable by means of microscopy (visible, ultraviolet and electron). This leads to a number of principles of structure to be found in the granum universally distributed throughout the plant kingdom. A chemical analysis of the constitution of these lamellar structures leads to a deduction of structural principles for such molecules as are found therein. The application of these structural principles to the visible structure of the lamella leads to a microstructure on a molecular level of these lamellae which, in turn, leads to a ... continued below
