ADD BIO: Rate of Photosynthesis

HideShow resource information
What are the factors than can affect the rate of photosynthesis?
Light intensity, CO² concentration, Temperature.
1 of 6
What are the environmental conditions that may affect the rate of photosynthesis?
Season, Time of day, position of plant (e.g. in the shade).
2 of 6
Explain why a farmer should ideally have enough CO² in a greenhouse, but not too much.
CO² will increase the rate of photosynthesis, but too much would be a waste of money.
3 of 6
List 3 benefits of growing plants in a greenhouse.
Artificial light can be added, traps the heat, keeps out pests.
4 of 6
Why can very few plants grow in the desert?
As there is very little water got them to be able to photosynthesise.
5 of 6
Why do tubers store starch, not glucose?
Starch molecules are insoluble so they won't draw lots of water and swell up as they would stored as glucose.
