PLANTS CREEP ALONG THE GROUND

Science Illustrated - - SPACE -

Red dwarfs do not emit very much vis­i­ble light. So, plants have to use not only the vis­i­ble light from the star in their pho­to­syn­the­sis, but also heat ra­di­a­tion. To cap­ture the in­frared ra­di­a­tion, the leaves of plants will prob­a­bly be dark brown, dark red, or black, be­cause dark colours ab­sorb more heat ra­di­a­tion.
