Comments P.85 left column 2nd paragraph: "PSIIα RCs are the most abundant and are localized on the appressed membrane region of the thylakoid and contain 210–250 Chl molecules, while PSIIβ RCs are localized in the non-appressed membrane region of the thylakoid and are 2–3 times smaller, in terms of their bound Chl, than PSIIα RCs [ref 23]."
