Chemical Evolution of Photosynthesis: Models and Hypotheses

  • A. A. Krasnovsky

Abstract

The life on our planet depends on photosynthesis of plants providing organic matter and oxygen to all the organisms living on the Earth. Now the question arises: does the origin of life on the Earth depend on photosynthesis too?
