  • Photosynthesis
    • carbon dioxide+ water= oxygen + glucose
      • Uses light energy
    • Takes place in the chloroplasts
      • Contains chlorophyll which absorbs light energy
        • Uses light energy
    • Glucose stored as starch
      • For photosynthesis overnight
    • Limiting Factors
      • CO2 concentration
      • Temperature
      • Light intensity
    • Leaf structure
      • Broad - big surface area for light to fall on
      • Many chloroplasts containing chlorophyll to absorb light energy
      • Air spaces to allow gases to get in and out
      • veins to transport water
