Nature's Palette Photograph by Michael Melford
Different trees lend different tones to the fall show at Acadia National Park in Maine. Crimson hues are the contribution of maples. Yellow tumbles from aspen. Birch and beech add gold to the park's palette. The chemical compounds that produce these splashy shades—anthocyanins, betacarotenes, tannins—come to light as the familiar green chlorophyll fades.
