  • Plant Structure and Photosynthesis
    • Mesophyll tissue
      • photosynthesis occurs
    • Xylem and ploem
      • transport of water, mineral ions and sucrose
    • Epidermal tissue
      • covers whole plant
    • carbon dioxide + water ----> glucose + oxygen
      • 6C02 + 6H20 ----> C6H1206 +602
    • photosynthesis happens inside the chloroplasts
    • chloroplasts contain chlorophyll
      • chlorophyll absorbs sunlight
        • uses the suns energy to covert carbon dioxide and water into glucose
          • oxygen is produced as a by-product
