Also, a lower number of stomata would increase the surface area and therefore increase the amount of area available for light to hit....   [tags: Papers]

The Effect of Stomata Density on the Midrib and Margin of Woody Dicot Leaves

- The Effect of Stomata Density on the Midrib and Margin of Woody Dicot Leaves INTRODUCTION Plants are relied heavily on their ability to exchange water and gases to keep life on Earth alive and well. Tiny, microscopic pores that are found on the surface of stems and leaves in plants are vital in order for this exchange to occur. These pores, or openings, are called stomata (Freeman, 2011). Stomata are mainly open when photosynthesis is occurring, which takes place during the day, and are closed at night....   [tags: photosynthesis, gas, research]

Photosynthesis And Its Effect On The World

- Introduction: What is photosynthesis, photosynthesis is the process where light energy is converted to chemical energy and storing it in chemical bond of sugar all these reactions take place in structures called chloroplasts. During the process of photosynthesis carbon dioxide, water, and light is consumed to produce glucose and oxygen. Thus bringing us to cellular respiration this is where plants consumes glucose and oxygen and produces carbon dioxide, water, and ATP energy molecules. To capture light energy for photosynthesis, chloroplasts absorb all light in the violet/blue and orange/red wavelengths....   [tags: Photosynthesis, Oxygen, Carbon dioxide]

Carris, Little, and Stiles (2012) defined pathogen as parasites that causes diseases which are categorized by symptoms. 70% of known plant diseases are caused by plant pathogenic fungi. Plant pathogenic fungi are parasites, but not all plant parasitic fungi are pathogens. Of many types of fungi that live on plants, the endophytic fungi live in intimate association with plants and depend on them for nutrition. As for the biotrophic fungal pathogens, they obtain nutrients from living host tissues, often via specialized cells called haustoria that form inside host cells....   [tags: pathogens in rubber tree plantations]

Investigating the Amount of Stomata on a Variety of Different Sized Leaves

- Investigating the Amount of Stomata on a Variety of Different Sized Leaves Introduction During this experiment I am going to investigate the stomata on a large leaf and a small leaf from the same plant to compare the amount of stomata per mm². The stomata are small openings found in the lower epidermis of leaves. Each stoma is surrounded by two bean-shaped guard cells containing chloroplasts. A stoma is a very efficient structure because it can control the rate of transpiration (water loss) and the exchange of gases....   [tags: Papers]

Photosynthesis Investigation

- Photosynthesis Investigation This is the method used by plants to obtain their food. Plants which use this process only are known as Autotrophic (self feeding) organisms. Plants produce carbohydrates as a result of Photosynthesis, predominately glucose. If a plant cannot use the glucose immediately it stores it in the form of starch. If the carbohydrates were stored as glucose, this would have a drastic effect on each plant cell. They would absorb water through osmosis, swell up and burst....   [tags: Papers]

A diagram of this apparatus is presented in page 4-5 of the biology lab manual (Bio, 2002). The computer connected to this apparatus was adjusted to present two graphs which measure the percentage of Oxygen in the air over time and photon flux (micromole quanta/m^2/s). Next, a leaf was retrieved from the top of a bean plant and sealed from the air in the laboratory via thumbscrews inside the leaf chamber of the apparatus....   [tags: Free Essays]

The Effect Of Photosynthesis On The World 's Largest Solar Battery ( Rajni Godvinjee )

- Photosynthesis is a process in which autotrophs use the reactants carbon dioxide, water, and light energy to produce glucose and a byproduct of oxygen. It should also be pointed out that autotrophs are organisms that produce their own food by means of photosynthesis, such as plants and certain types of bacteria. Plants breath out the oxygen through their stomata, and could care about the oxygen as much as we care about breathing out carbon dioxide. Due to the byproduct of oxygen that is released from this process, it is essential to all life on earth, in an ever continuing cycle....   [tags: Carbon dioxide, Acid, PH, Photosynthesis]
