"However, none of the pigments absorbs well in the green-yellow region, which is responsible for the abundant green we see in nature." Quick qoogling for spectra (for example, carotene) shows that it isn't true. So I set citation needed tag. IMHO it is wrong connection between green color and absense of green-absorbing pinments, because we well know the reason why the leaves are turned to yellow in automn. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:32, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
There are other photosynthetic dexter such as Bacteriorhodopsin and vertebrate rhodopsin. Bacteriorhodopsin is used by the halobacteria in the Archaea and vertebrate rhopdopsin is to be found in the retina in the eyes of vertebrates. I'm sure there must be others... -Martin.
- I don't think rhodopsin qualifies as a photosynthetic pigment. I added phycobilin, bacteriorhodopsin and bacteriochlorophyll. Do we have them all now? AxelBoldt 06:23, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Disputed: I don't think Bacteriorhodopsin is considered a photosyntheic pigment. Also, Halobacteria (if you are speaking about the family Halobacteriales) do not undergo photosynthesis to the best of my knowledge.this page has no answers!!!!!!! They just use light to drive certain metabolic processes. Therefore, they cannot be considered photosynthetic archaea. I have added a disputed accuracy banner to the last section.
