From the: Biology of Plants Series

Almost all life either directly or indirectly depends on one of the most important biological processes on the planet - photosynthesis. Through easy-to-understand graphics and colorful animations, the complex chemical process of photosynthesis is explored. The various structures involved in photosynthesis, transpiration, and transport are also highlighted. Concepts and terminology include: chloroplast, photosystem, light reactions, light-independent reactions, carbon fixation, pigments, photon, absorption, spectrum, chlorophyll, carotenoids, electron transport, photophosphorylation, Calvin Cycle, and C4 plants.

"In this breakdown of the process of photosynthesis, viewers learn how plants convert three basic ingredients - sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water - into nutrition in the form of glucose..."
