Abstract

A quantitative understanding of the photosynthetic


machinery depends largely on quantities, such as


concentrations, sizes, absorption wavelengths, redox


potentials, and rate constants. The present contribution is a


collection of numbers and quantities related mainly to


photosynthesis in higher plants. All numbers are taken


directly from a literature or database source and the corresponding


reference is provided. The numerical values,


presented in this paper, provide ranges of values, obtained


in specific experiments for specific organisms. However,


the presented numbers can be useful for understanding the


principles of structure and function of photosynthetic


machinery and for guidance of future research.
