This illustration shows of an evolutionary scheme for the two types of reactions centers -- the core machinery of photosynthesis -- used by cyanobacteria, algae, and plants. The proposed relationship of the newly-identified chlorophyll f synthase enzyme is shown as predating the evolution of Photosystem II.
