    That question is the one that captured my interest from the very first…in a botany class as a freshman in high school. Under a microscope, there is no real color to a leaf, the color green comes from the chloroplasts that are inside the leaf cell. Chloroplasts are small spherical bodies (for the most part) that have the green pigment that is chlorophyl. And are the ones that do the yoemans work of photosynthesis. What is of the most interest, recent research suggests that they are modified bacteria that have developed a symbiotic relationship with plants to provide the carbohydrate nutrition in exchange for a place to live. Though the whole process is a tad more complex.
