TermDefinition
Photosynthesis Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a byproduct.
Respiration the action of breathing
Stomata stoma found in the epidermis of leaves, stems, and other organs, that facilitates gas exchange.
Chlorophyll a green pigment, present in all green plants and in cyanobacteria, responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis. Its molecule contains a magnesium atom held in a porphyrin ring.
Guardcells each of a pair of curved cells that surround a stoma, becoming larger or smaller according to the pressure within the cells.
Chloroplast (in green plant cells) a plastid that contains chlorophyll and in which photosynthesis takes place.
Light dependent reaction In plants, the light reactions take place in the thylakoid membranes of organelles called chloroplasts.
Light independet react light-independent reactions
Energy pyamid The different levels represent different groups of organisms that might compose a food ...
Producer a person, company, or country that makes, grows, or supplies goods or commodities for sale. "an oil producer"
Mitochondrion an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur. It has a double membrane, the inner layer being folded inward to form layers (cristae).
Autotrophs an organism that is able to form nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substances such as carbon dioxide
Consumers food chain, except for producers and decomposers
Herbivore an animal that feeds on plants.
Omnivores an animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin.
Heterotrophs an organism deriving its nutritional requirements from complex organic substances.
carnivores an animal that feeds on flesh.
Decomposers an organism, especially a soil bacterium, fungus, or invertebrate, that decomposes organic material. a device or installation that is used to break down a chemical
Spongy layer a layer of loosely packed and irregularly shaped chlorophyll-bearing cells that fills the part of a leaf between the palisad
palisade layer a layer of parallel elongated cells below the epidermis of a leaf.
raw materials the basic material from which a product is made.
Oxygen a colorless, odorless reactive gas, the chemical element of atomic number 8 and the life-supporting component of the air.
carban dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning carbon and organic compounds and by respiration. It is naturally present in air (about 0.03 percent) and is absorbed by plants in photosynthesis.
Glucose a simple sugar that is an important energy source in living organisms and is a component of many carbohydrates.
