Photosynthesis

Importance of Photosynthesis
It converts light energy to chemical energy
1 of 14
Word equation of Photosynthesis
Carbon Dioxide + Water ---> (sun and chlorophyll) Glucose + Oxygen
2 of 14
Chemical Symbol Equation for Photosynthesis
6CO2 + 6H2O ---> C6H12O6 + 6O2
3 of 14
Factors affecting Photosynthesis
CO2 concentration, Light intensity, temperature.
4 of 14
Where are chloroplasts found?
Palisade layer - This is why the palisade layer is near the top where it can get the most light
5 of 14
Adaptions of Upper Epidermis?
Transparent - so light can pass through it to the palisade layer
6 of 14
What are vascular bundles?
Transport vessels - Xylem and Phloem (they deliver water and other nutrients to every part of the leaf and take away glucose produced by photosynthesis
7 of 14
Adaptions of the waxy cuticle?
Helps reduce water loss by evaporation
8 of 14
What are nitrates for?
For making amino acids, proteins chlorophyll and DNA
9 of 14
Deficiency Symptoms of Nitrate and Magnesium?
Stunted growth, Leaves turn yellow
10 of 14
Pesticides?
Chemical pest control. Some harm other wildlife.
11 of 14
Biological Control?
Introducing a new organism to the crop that is a natural predator of the pest. Less harmful to wildlife. Longer-lasting effect
12 of 14
What is the effect of fertiliser?
It increases crop yield
13 of 14
What is the effect of greenhouses?
They trap the suns heat and heat the plants. It also keeps pests away.
