Photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic pigments in croton varieties


Journal of the Andaman Science Association 4(1): 77-78
Photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic pigments in croton varieties
Variations in Codiaeum variegatum leaf colour are due to variations in the proportions of photosynthetic (chlorophylls-a and -b and carotenoids) and non-photosynthetic (anthocyanins) pigments. A study was conducted to determine the extent of variability in the pigment composition in leaves of C. variegatum cultivars. The data are tabulatd. The highest chlorophyll-a and -b contents were observed in Muddana followed by Bomnu and Valmiki, with the lowest in IIHR-126.
