how are leaves adapted for photosynthesis?
large surface area, waxy cuticles prevent evaporation, stomata allow C02 in, mosaic arrangement so don't shade each other
4 of 10
what four factors affect photosynthesis
light intensity, colour of light, carbon dioxide, temperature
5 of 10
how do you test a leaf for starch
put it in boiling water, but it in a test tube of ethanol and inside a water bath, pat the leaf dry, asdd iodine solution = black
