Photosynthesis can happen in more than one way.

The different colors indicate two types of photosynthesis in blue-green algal cells: chlorophyll-a (magenta) and chlorophyll-f (yellow).DENNIS NUERNBERG In a study published in Science on June 14, researchers show that many blue-green algae use near-infrared light, instead of the usual visible red light, to photosynthesize. These algae used chlorophyll-f when they have access to only near-infrared light, as opposed to chlorophyll-a, which they use under red light.

In a statement, Bill Rutherford, a coauthor on the paper, says this “changes how we understand the key events at the heart of standard photosynthesis.”
