A question about Photosynthetic organisms!
« on: February 07, 2008, 07:58:47 PM »
Photosynthetic organisms are rarely pathogenic. Why?

And my answer is "  It would be difficult to infect many other organisms as a pathogen if the infective agent required light to survive. Hair, feathers, or basic shade would prevent the survival on the outside of a host organism, and inside the organism."

I don't know if i am right or no!

That's a decent answer.  There is another reason.  Why do pathogenic organisms invade other organisms?

So the other organism produces its energy for them?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
