Hi Every one! I know its been a while since I last uploaded anything to my RWBY or Happy Rwby Au tag. Well the wait is over. I’m back and hopefully will keep you guys entertained until Vol. 5 huh? :D
So a quick filler. Since I last updated, time has passed in the Au. A couple years to be exact. Many new things have happened and many new things are about to as well! I wont go into full detail but I’ll give you a run through.
how does the type of star + the light it emits affect what kind of plant grows on its orbiting planet? i read somewhere that the trappist-1 star gives off a red/ orange light and therefore the plants would grow black?
Darn good question! Once we find a planet with different types of plants under a different type of star, we’ll have an answer. :-)
Until then, all we can do is make some educated guesses.
Plants under a dim red sun (or any sun, actually) would want to absorb as much energy as possible since the red wavelengths are the low-energy side of the spectrum. Black absorbs all visible wavelengths, and so, logically, would be the most efficient color to be.
But that assumption doesn’t always work out. Evolution doesn’t choose for the ‘most efficient’ solution, it chooses for the ‘best for now’ solution.
Our Sun puts out most energy in the yellow-green wavelengths, so you’d expect that Earth plants might be reddish or black, absorbing all the higher-energy yellows and greens and blues. But they aren’t.
Chlorophyll is a comparatively poor absorber of green light - which seems counter-intuitive. Why would plants shun much of the higher energy green light (they reflect much of it - which is why plants are green)? Shouldn’t they be red or yellow in order to absorb greens and blues, which are of higher energy?
Plants use chlorophyll (instead of a chemical that absorbs greens better) for a very simple reason - it works ‘good enough.’
So, maybe plants under a dim red sun will be black. Or they may be green, as chlorophyll works to absorb those reds really well. Or they may be some other color because it works ‘good enough’ for the plants in that ecosystem.
We just don’t know yet. Which means any color you want plants on a planet to be would probably be a believable choice.
Thank you @qrowin-shitposts for your wonderful Strawbanana shitpost inspiration and another note~ SORRY I’VE BEEN SO BUSY HERE HAVE THIS SHITTY COMIC AS AN APOLOGY AND CONGRATS TO MICHAEL AND LINDSEY ON THEIR SOON BE BE BABY!!!!!.
