Description:

The plants in the window, the trees outside and the broccoli in the refrigerator all have ancient ancestors that didn't used to be green. They only "got green" when they captured smaller green creatures that turn sunlight into food. These small green creatures eventually became the green "chloroplasts" that the plants use to capture energy from the sun through the process of photosynthesis. Studies from scientist in Japan have found a creature that may be making this transition.
