Experiment Overview

To introduce you to photosynthesis – the fundamental energy transforming process that occurs in green plants, and to the structure of the leaves that facilitate it. This process is essential for all life on earth as we know it

Part 1: Photosynthesis of Experiment
. Set up experiment on photosynthesis in Egeria densa
. Take measurements of the practical
. Calculate the photosynthetic rate

Part 2: Leaf Structure
. Examine leaf transverse sections on prepared slides of Zea mays (a monocot) and Ligustrum sp. (a dicot)
. Prepare and stain transverse sections of Eucalyptus leaves
