TermDefinition
photosynthesis Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and other things make food.
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 Each of a pair of curved cells that surround a stoma becoming larger or smaller according to the pressure within the cells.
Guard Cells Each of a pair of curved cells that surround a stoma becoming larger or smaller according to the pressure within the cells.
Chlorophyll A green pigment present in all green plants and in cyanobacteria responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis.
Chloroplast (in green plants) a plastid that contains chlorophyll and in which photosynthesis takes place.
Light dependent reaction The series of biochemical reactions in photosynthesis that require light energy that is capture by light-absorbing pigments (such as chlorophyll) to be converted into chemical energy in the form of ATP and NADPH.
Light independent react The light independent reaction , 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 Producer is an organism either a green plant or bacterium, which is the first level of a food chain.
Mitochondrion Mitochondrion are organelles or parts of a eukaryote.
Autotraphs An organism capable of sythesizing its own food from inorganic substances, using light or chemical energy.
Consumers an organism that generally obtains food by feeding on other organism or organic matter due to lack of the ability to manufacture own food from inorganic sources; a heterotroph.
Herbivore A herbivore is often defined as any organism that eats only plants.
Omnivores an omnivores 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 plant that requires a staple diet consisting mainly or exclusively of animal tissue through predation or scavenging .
Decomposers Decomposers are organisms and in doing so they carry out the natural process of decomposition.
Spongy layer a layer of loosely packed and irregularly shaped chlorophyll-bearing cells that fills the part of a leaf between the palisade layer and the lower epidermis.
palisade layer Palisada cells are plant cells located in leaves, right below the epidermis and cuticle.
raw material raw material are materials or substances used in the primary production or manufacturing of goods.
oxygen a colorless. odorless reactive gas, the chemical element of atomic number 8 and the life-supporting component of the air.
carbon dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning carbon and organic compounds and by respiration.
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 cellular product is something manufactured by an organelle
