  • How Does Chlorophyll Affect Plant Growth

    Introduction: Once a plant begins growth, it depends on multiple abiotic factors to continue growing: light, carbon dioxide and water. These three factors affect the growth rate of a plant, causing it to grow quicker or slower. Furthermore, altering these factors may stunt plants growth or improve it. For example, plants require an adequate amount of water to survive. Water hydrates the plant and also breaks down the minerals in the soil. As the plant absorbs the water, nutrients are transported into the cells. In addition, Light intensity varies depending on the season, for example during winter, days are shorter as thus daylight is minimised for plants, however as spring approaches the amount of sunlight available to plants increases, thereby…

  • Abiotic Factors Essay

    affect plant growth and development include topography, soil, and climatic factors. They are the nonliving components of the environment which, along with the biotic or living factors, determine the extent in which the genetic factor is expressed in the plant. Topography Topography is a nonliving factor that refers to the “lay of the land.” It includes the physical features of the earth such as the land elevation, slope, terrain (flat, rolling, hilly, etc.), mountain ranges and bodies of water.…

  • Importance And Importance Of Photosynthesis In Agriculture

    Title: Importance of photosynthesis in agriculture. Introduction: photosynthesis is the process by which plants and some bacteria convert energy from the sun into food or chemical energy, This is how plants survive. This is the chemical reaction that takes place inside the leaf of a plant. This is what makes plants green and healthy.Photosynthesis has a vital role in agriculture. It allows crops to turn energy from the sun into a food source it helps the growth of the crop. It provides…

  • The Importance Of Tree Communication

    why other species have not evolved this ability. We were created with the capability to employ speech for communication, plants do not have this ability. Have you ever watched The Lorax by Dr. Seuss? This a movie about how the Oncler cuts down trees to make thneeds, a clothing material that has a variety of different uses. He ends up making truffula trees go extinct, so people have no choice but to buy air to survive. In the beginning when the oncler cuts down the first tree, he gets summoned by…

  • Photosynthesis Importance

    Photosynthesis is the way in which some specialised bateria and green plants use their chlorophyll to trap light energy and then use this energy to convert carbon dioxide and water to glucose and oxygen. The green colour in plants is from the chemical chlorophyll which is found in the chloroplasts in the cells of the plant. It is very concentrated in the leaves of the plants due to the surface of the leaf being flat which allows it to have a very big surface area to absorb light:…

  • Reproductive Biochemical Cycles

    The earth is reliant on various reproductive biochemical cycles, to maintain balanced and regulated conditions on earth and within the atmosphere (Name, date). These cycles include the carbon, nitrogen and hydrological cycles. These cycles among others, bring with them various geological, chemical, physical and biological processes (name, date). All these cycles are interconnected; matter within them is continually cycled between biotic and abiotic parts of the environment (name, date). Without…

  • Habitat Destruction

    Most threats facing animals and plants at present can be linked to human influences. Habitat destruction is the greatest contributor to the extinction of species. Human actions which threaten biodiversity can be divided into two categories, deliberate actions and unintentional actions. Many habitats for example, swamps, wetlands, forests and other habitats get destroyed for human consumption and industrial gain. By destroying habitats, many different animals face death because they no longer…

  • Urine System Essay

    Research has shown that urine helps plants best when diluted with purified water; this is likely due to the fact that urine contains chemicals that would halt (or at the very least, slow down considerably) important processes within the plant. Such processes include, but are certainly not limited to, transpiration and photosynthesis, inarguably the two most vital activities performed within the plant. Transpiration occurs when plants lose water vapor through the guard cells and stomata; when…

  • Prunus Spinosa Case Study

    B) Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) Active components of the plant are believed to be polyphenols, including flavonoids, A-type proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, coumarins, and phenolic acids, forming unique and diversified profiles in particular organs, among which the flowers are the least (Owczarek et al., 2017). This work is the first comprehensive phytochemical and activity study of the flower extracts of P. spinosa. (Phenolic compounds of blackthorn (Prunus spinosa L.) and influence of in…
