Plants are icons of sustainability. They create critical products for other living organisms while utilizing waste products.
Hierarchical Systems in Biology — DNA Packaging
It is hard to fathom that such a highly complex, hierarchical mechanism of information storage on a microscopic scale could come about purely by chance.
Study: Planets Capable of Sustaining Photosynthesis Are Extremely Rare
So how did the paper determine that photosynthesis has an “overall simplicity,” despite the complexity just described?
Do Proteins Lack Metals, Reflecting Poor Design?
According to Erika DeBenedictis, “one of the big limitations of biology are the basic building blocks themselves.”
