  • Plant Structure and Photosynthesis
    • Organs
      • Stems, roots and leaves
        • Mesophyll tissue- photosynthesis
        • Xylem and Phloem- transport water, mineral ions and sucrose
        • Epidermal tissue- covers the whole plant
    • Carbon Dioxide + Water -> Glucose + Oxygen
    • Photosynthesis
      • The process which produces Glucose in plants and algae
      • Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll which absorbs sunlight and uses its energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose. Oxygen is produced as a by-product
      • Happens in the leaves of all green plants
