    • The glucose produced by photosynthesis may be
      • Converted into soluble starch for storage
      • Used for Respiration
      • Converted into fats and oils for storage
      • Used to produce cellulose which strengthens cell walls
      • Used to produce Proteins
    • Plants and algal cells need a supply of mineral ions
      • Such as nitrate ions in order to produce protein
      • Plants absorb nitrate ions from the soil
      • Algae absorbs nitrate from the water they live in
