  • Photosynthesis
    • Carbon dioxide + water -> glucose + oxygen
    • Glucose = Food
    • Upper epidermis
      • palisade mesophyll layer
        • Spongy mesophyll layer
          • Lower epidermis
    • Carbon dioxide in, Oxygen out
    • Limiting factor
      • Light
        • Temperature
          • Amount of carbon dioxide
        • Enzymes work slow when cold but die if to hot
    • Adaptations
      • Tiny holes for carbon dioxide to diffuse
        • Flat shape increase surface area
          • Chloroplasts absorb light
            • Upper epidermis is transparent to let light pass though
    • Xylem = water up
      • Phloem = food
    • Green house keeps plants warm and in the sun
      • Can install paraffin heater to increase carbon dioxide
