are characterized by a red pigment. Can Red algae carry out photosynthesis? Explain why or why not.

In reference to the Red Algae, they can carry out photosynthesis because they contain pigments called phycoerythrins that enable them to absorb blue light while reflecting red light, which is the process that makes it possible for red algae to carry out photosynthesis as blue light absorbed by the red algae is capable of penetrating deeper than lights of longer ...
