Plant Processes

SOL 7.5

Photosynthesis the complex process by which carbon dioxide, water, and certain inorganic salts are converted into carbohydrates by green plants, algae, and certain bacteria, using energy from the sun and chlorophyll.
Respiration the sum total of the physical and chemical processes in an organism by which oxygen is conveyed to tissues and cells, and the oxidation products, carbon dioxide and water, are given off. an analogous chemical process, as in muscle cells or in anaerobic b
Stomata plural form of stoma.
Guard cells either of two specialized epidermal cells that flank the pore of a stoma and usually cause it to open and close.

Light independent reaction 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.

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 -- called also spongy parenchyma, spongy tissue.
Palisade a layer of columnar cells rich in chloroplasts found beneath the upper epidermis of foliage leaves.
