Presentation Abstract

In small bodies of water such as ponds, rivers and lakes have significant influences with biological diversity and networking within the landscape. For oxbow, the role of a natural linker between similar areas within the landscape plays the river. Chlorophyll is a green substance that appears in green plants and cyanobacteria which is also good for absorption of light for providing energy for photosynthesis. This molecule can hold a magnesium atom that is held in a porphyrin ring. It can also determine primary production and photosynthesis. They are also essential molecules that are responsible for harvesting solar energy in photosynthetic antenna systems, and for the charge separation and electron transport within reaction centers. The difference between chlorophyll and pheophytin is that Pheophytin is a grey pigment related to Chlorophyll, with the difference that its Porphyrin ring does not have Magnesium ion in the center, but two different protons instead.
