  4. 4. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is photosynthesis? </li></ul><ul><li>It is the process by which plants and other producers convert the energy of sunlight into the energy stored in organic molecules. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Where Photosynthesis takes place In this sunflower, the greatest amount of chloroplasts are located in the leaves. A pigment called chlorophyll gives the chloroplasts – and in turn the leaves – their green color.
  6. 6. Where Photosynthesis takes place
  7. 7. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is the name of the cellular organelle where photosynthesis takes place ? </li></ul><ul><li>Chloroplast </li></ul>
  8. 8. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is mesophyll ? </li></ul><ul><li>The mesophyll , sandwiched between the upper and lower epidermis, consists of many thin-walled cells that are usually arranged in two layers. The palisade layer is next to the upper epidermis. It consists of cylindrical cells that are packed closely together. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is mesophyll ? </li></ul><ul><li>Next to the palisade layer and making up most of the thickness of the leaf blade is the spongy layer . The spongy layer consists of roundish cells that are packed loosely together and have numerous air spaces between them. All the cells of the mesophyll contain chloroplasts . </li></ul>
  10. 10. Anatomy of a Leaf <ul><li>The leaf provides food for the rest of the plant through the process of photosynthesis . The outermost layer of the leaf is the epidermis , which is protected by the waxy coating of the cuticle . Guard cells implanted in the epidermis form pores, known as stomata , through which water, oxygen, and carbon dioxide pass. Embedded in the inner tissues of the leaf are chloroplasts , where photosynthesis occurs. The plant veins consist of two specialized tissues. Xylem conducts water from the plant to the leaf, while phloem carries food from the leaf to the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>© Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is the function of the leaves stomata? </li></ul><ul><li>Stomata are tiny pores that are found on the surface of the leaf. Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) enters the leaf and oxygen (O 2 ) exits the leaf through stomata. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is granum ? </li></ul><ul><li>Thylakoids are arranged in stacks called grana (singular granum ). </li></ul>X -> Stroma Y -> Thylakoid Z -> Granum
  13. 13. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is the goal of the light reactions that occur in the chloroplast? </li></ul><ul><li>Their goal is to convert energy in sunlight to chemical energy . This is done by capturing the sunlight energy through the action of Chlorophyll . This captured energy is used to split water into oxygen and hydrogen ions . The water’s electrons and hydrogen ions are then used to form ATP and NADPH . </li></ul>
  14. 14. Reading Questions & Answers <ul><li>What is the goal of the Calvin cycle ? </li></ul><ul><li>The Calvin cycle makes sugar from the atoms in Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) plus the hydrogen ions and high-energy electrons carried by NADPH . The enzymes for the Calvin cycle are located outside the thylakoids and dissolved in the stroma . The ATP molecules made by the light reactions provide energy to make sugar . </li></ul>
  15. 15. Concept Check 8.1 <ul><li>Draw and label a simple diagram of a chloroplast that includes the following structures: outer and inner membranes, stroma, and thylakoids. </li></ul>

  17. 17. Concept Check 8.1 <ul><li>Name the two main stages of photosynthesis. How are the two stages related? </li></ul><ul><li>The two main stages are the light reactions and the Calvin cycle . The ATP and NADPH generated by the light reactions are necessary for the Calvin cycle. While the Calvin cycle recycles NADP + and ADP back to the light reactions. </li></ul><ul><li>(Look at the diagram on the following slide) </li></ul>
