Phases of photosynthesis
Glasshouse: conditions are controlled to influence plant growth.
Light and dark phases of photosynthesis.
The or does not require light. It takes place in the stroma  or of the
where the hydrogen is released by the carrier molecule and, under the
control of enzymes, combines with the carbon dioxide to form glucose. The
carrier molecule (NADP) is available for re-use.
Commercial production of vegetables and flowers under controlled
conditions relies on knowledge of the factors affecting the rate of
_A Tip for Your Exam. Make sure you know the factors necessary for
photosynthesis to take place. Understand that these control the rate of
photosynthesis; e.g. light intensity must be such that sufficient energy is
available for the light-dependent phase. Know from where and how the
reactants are obtained and reach the site of photosynthesis. A plant is
green because it reflects green light. The chlorophyll of plants absorbs
red and blue wavelengths of light._
