Do you know why some leaves change their colors in the autumn season and some don’t? Well, it’s because of some simple environmental clues and of course, science! The leaves of the deciduous tree, the fall leaves, have colored pigments called carotenoids and anthocyanin, which are also found in fruits and flowers. Carotenoids, which give the leaves yellow and orange colors, absorb the wavelengths that even chlorophyll can’t and use excess energy produced in the leaves in high light conditions. Anthocyanin, responsible for the purple and red color in fall leaves helps the leaves to use up the excess sugar in the leaves, giving them a unique color. Apart from sugar, the temperature and number of daylight hours also influence the rate at which leaves change their colors.
It’s almost the end of September and we’re already beginning to see some real colors on the trees. The days a delightful and nights are cool.
