Photosynthesis

One of three programs about cell biochemistry, this program outlines the essential steps of photosynthesis and its vital role in converting light to chemical energy – the energy source for almost all life on Earth.

The program explores:

  • energy sources for living organisms
  • chloroplast structure and function
  • the photosynthesis process:
    • light-dependent stage
    • light-independent stage
    • inputs & outputs for each stage
  • key factors affecting photosynthesis:
    • light intensity
    • water availability
    • carbon dioxide concentration
    • temperature
  • uses of glucose by plants
  • chemosynthetic organisms

A separate sequence explores the Calvin cycle in more detail.
