Its importance and limiting and interacting factors controlling the rate of plant photosynthesis and how the ideas are applied to horticultural operations e.g. a greenhouse

Doc Brown's biology exam revision study notes 

Sub-index for photosynthesis notes

(1) Introduction to the importance of photosynthesis to life on Earth

(2) What is the chemical process of photosynthesis?

(3) Plant structure and photosynthesis - leaf adaptations

(4) What does the plant do with the glucose produced by photosynthesis?

(5) What factors affect the rate of photosynthesis? (no graphs in Part (5), see (6) and (8)

(6) Factors controlling the rate of photosynthesis - detailed discussion of typical data graphs

(7) How to successfully operate a commercial  greenhouse!

(8) More complex graphs involving more than one limiting factor controlling the rate of photosynthesis

(9) Measuring rate of photosynthesis - experimental method 1 measuring volume of oxygen produced

(10) Measuring the rate of photosynthesis - experimental method 2 - timing the movement of a gas bubble

(11) Simple experiments investigating aspects of photosynthesis eg. detecting starch, effect of light, CO2
