C4 photosynthesis is an adaptation to hot, dry conditions in which:
CO2 is fixed and stored in the leaf
The most abundant protein on earth is:
Which is incorrect about photosynthesis?
The light reactions take palce in th cytoplasm and the light-independent reactons occur inthe chloropast.
When something appears blue, it is absorbing all colors except____.
When carbon dioxide is low in th leaf, the Calvin cycle cannot proceed efficiently, and the result is:
Which of the following is not preent during the Calvin cycle?
A pigment appears red if it absorbs red light.

The main products of photosynthesis are:
glucose and oxygen
The main products of photosynthesis are:
ATP and oxygen
