  • Plants
    • Tissues
    • Photosynthesis
      • Light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll which is found in chloroplasts
  • Epidermal tissues cover the plant
    • Tissues
  • Mesophyll carries out photosynthesis
    • Xylem and Phloem transport substances around plant (found in the vascular bundles)
      • Xylem carries water up plant from roots to leaves
        • Xylem and Phloem transport substances around plant (found in the vascular bundles)
        • Phloem carries glucose from leaves to wherever it is needed
          • carbon dioxide + water = glucose + oxygen
            • Photosynthesis
              • Light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll which is found in chloroplasts
          • Light energy is used by converting C02 and H20 into sugar (glucose)
            • Oxygen is released as a by-product (given off)
              • Limiting factors... shortage of light, low temp, shortage of c02.
                • Can improve photosynthesis in a greenhouse by improving light intensity, temp, c02
                  • Glucose produced converts to insoluble starch for storage. Plant cells use it for respiration
