  • Plants
    • Photosynthesis
      • Carbon dioxide + water (+light energy) -> glucose +oxygen
      • During photosynthesis
        • Light energy absorbed by green chlorophyll, found in chloroplasts
        • The energy is used to convert carbon dioxide(from air) and water (from soil) into glucose
          • Oxygen is released as a by-product
          • Glucose can be converted into insoluble starch for storage
    • Plant Organs
      • Epidermal tissues
        • Cover the plant
      • Mesophyll
        • Carries out photosynthesis
      • Xylem and Phloem
        • Transport substances around the plant
