    Bioluminescence in Fungi INTRODUCTION What is Bioluminescence? The current paper main focus is on bio luminescent Fungi but the basic features of bioluminescence discussed are common to all bio luminescent organisms. Bioluminescence is simply light created by living organisms. Probably the most commonly known example of bioluminescence by North Americans is the firefly, which lights its abdomen during its mating season to communicate with potential mates. This bio luminescent ability occurs in 2...

    Photosynthesis is a biochemical process in which plant, algae, and some bacteria harness the energy of light to produce food. Nearly all living things depend on energy produced from photosynthesis for their nourishment, making it vital to life on Earth. It is also responsible for producing the oxygen that makes up a large portion of the Earth's atmosphere. Factors that affect photosynthesis are light intensity and wave length, carbon dioxide concentration, and temperature. Plants are autotrophs ...

    By Gerard Chretien Biology Photosynthesis: Energy from the Sun Identifying Photosynthetic Reactants And Products A. The water for photosynthesis in land plants comes primarily from the soil and must travel from the roots to leaves. B. Carbon dioxide is taken in, and water and O 2 are released, through tiny openings in leaves, called stroma ta. C. Light is absolutely necessary for the production of oxygen and carbohydrate. The photosynthetic production of oxygen by green plants is an important so...

    Colours Chloroplasts contain several different pigments the majority of which are chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. Both of these types of chlorophyll absorb similar wavelengths of light, but chlorophyll a absorbs a slightly higher wavelength than chlorophyll b. Neither chlorophyll absorbs much light in the green region of the spectrum thus making it appear green. This can be plotted onto a graph (fig 1.1). This graph is called the Absorption Spectrum. The Absorption Spectrum is very similar in s...

    PHOTOSYNTHESIS General Info Dean: "To make with light" Reactants (Ingredients) CO 2, H 2 O, Sunlight, chlorophyll Products Food (C 6 H 12 O 6 = glucose) and O 2 Overall Reaction Photosynthesis is actually a series of two reactions. Light reactions (require sunlight) chlorophyll uses sunlight to split water and form oxygen and chemical energy. Dark reactions (don t require light) use chemical energy from light reaction to convert carbon dioxide into glucose. Where does photosynthesis take place S...
