TermDefinition
photosynthesis the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water.
respiration a process in living organisms involving the production of energy, typically with the intake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide from the oxidation of complex organic substances.
stomata are very small openings in membranes, particularly in plants, through which water and gas pass.
guard cells is an epidermal cell that can open the stomata to take in or release oxygen, carbon dioxide and water,
cholrophyll a green pigment, present in all green plants responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis.
light dependent reaction series of biochemical reactions in photosynthesis that require light energy that is captured by light-absorbing pigments (such as chlorophyll) to be converted into chemical energy in the form of ATP and NADPH.
light independent reaction light-independent reactions, or dark reactions, of photosynthesis are chemical reactions that convert carbon dioxide and other compounds into glucose.
energy pyramid An energy pyramid is a graphical model of energy flow in a community.
producer An autotrophic organism capable of producing complex organic compounds from simple inorganic molecules through the process of photosynthesis
mitochondrion an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur.
autotroph an organism that is able to form nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substances such as carbon dioxide.
counsumers An organism that generally obtains food by feeding on other organisms
herbivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating plants, and only plants.
omnivore An omnivore is a kind of animal that eats either other animals or plants.
heterotrophs An organism that cannot manufacture its own food and instead obtains its food and energy by taking in organic substances,
carnivores an animal or a plant that only eats animals
decomposers organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms, and in doing so, they carry out the natural process of decomposition.
spongy layer a layer of loosely packed and irregularly shaped
palisade layer layer of columnar cells rich in chloroplasts
raw materials materials or substances used in the primary production or manufacturing of goods.
oxygen A colorless, tasteless, oderless, gaseous element that abounds in the atmosphere. that we breath in to live
carbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless gas found in our atmosphere. Its chemical formula is CO2, which means it is one carbon atom bonded to two oxygen atoms. It is a waste product in our bodies and is also produced by burning fossil fuels.
portfolios questioning
glucose Glucose is the main type of sugar in the blood and is the major source of energy for the body's cells.
products a chemical substance formed as a result of a chemical reaction
