Light as a Raw Material of Photosynthesis - Photosynthesis is the process of making glucose using the raw materials water, carbon dioxide and radiant energy. Which is trapped by the chlorophyll molecules and then oxygen is given off as a bi-product if the process. It is the conversion of radiant energy into chemical potential energy. The occurrence of photosynthesis is very important to us as humans, because it provides us with the oxygen we need to breathe and plants are at the bottom of every food-chain and so without them, I would collapse....   [tags: radiant energy, chlorophyll, glucose]

EU’s Plant Reproductive Material Regulation - Introduction This paper analyses the EU’s Plant Reproductive Material Regulation. This may seem to be a topic that does not concern regular EU citizens. On the contrary, it is highly significant for every one of us. This regulation massively influences which plant reproductive materials, either at supermarkets and markets or at other seed suppliers of your choice, can be bought. In order to understand what this regulation is about, we need to define what plant reproductive material even is. Plant reproductive material, short PRM, “is material of any kind of plants (from seeds up to fully grown trees) used for the production of other plants” (European Commission [2013]:1)....   [tags: European Parliament]
