I have a problem with the distribution of the two photosystems between granal
and stromal thylakoids. The usual model, most recently described by Eric
Larson, may be quite appropriate for chloroplasts of higher plants, but algal
chloroplasts, even those of the Chlorophyceae, are typically said to lack
grana. Yet, we know their photosystems are very similar to those of higher
plants.

So how are photosystems I and II organized in agranal chloroplasts?
