The Wonders of Photosynthesis: Earth's Natural Magic
Chlorophyll — this pigment captures sunlight, which plants use as energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into food.
Just like a factory, plants' cells convert inputs into outputs. Oxygen, a vital byproduct, is released for us to breathe.
Photosynthesis impacts our climate. Plants absorb CO2, a greenhouse gas, thus playing a key role in our planet's health.
Without photosynthesis, there would be no food. Plants form the base of the food web, supporting life as we know it.
Not just on land; phytoplankton in oceans also perform photosynthesis, producing over half of the world's oxygen supply.
By understanding photosynthesis, we grasp the importance of preserving plant life to sustain our own lives on Earth.
