Abstract english

We pay tribute to the life and work of Margareta

Ryberg (1946–2012). She was an expert on the different

forms of protochlorophyll(ide), their protein partners, and

their transformations in angiosperms; on the structural

aspects, and the nature of prolamellar bodies, as well as on

the localization of light-dependent NADPH:protochlorophyllide

oxido-reductase. She was a great teacher, who also

loved gardening and handicraft. But above all, she was a

beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend who will be

deeply missed.
