  • Photosynthesis
    • Produces glucose for the plant
      • Carbon dioxide + water ----> Glucose + Oxygen
        • Sunlight
        • Chlorophyll
          • Contained in Chloroplasts
          • Sunlight
      • Oxygen is a waste product
        • Released from underside by stomata
      • Glucose stored/used by plant
        • Starch
          • Stored in leaf
            • Can be used by plant later
        • Respiration
        • Cellulose
          • Used for cell walls
        • Fats and oils
          • Stored in seeds
        • Protienes
          • Require Nitrogen also
            • From soil
    • Plants
    • Pondweed
    • Algae
    • Carbon Dioxide absorbed by stomata
      • On the underside of the leaf
    • Water absorbed by roots. Delivered to leaf via stem
    • Can be 'limited'/ slowed down
      • Light instensity
      • Carbon Dioxide concentration
      • Temperature
