Introduction to Photosynthesis
- Introduce the topic by playing the video micro-lecture, Photosynthesis from bozemanscience.
- Use the video to explain how photosynthetic pathways are affected by stomatal conductance, which in turn affects nutrient and water uptake by the plants.
- Further, explain the influence of photorespiration on photosynthetic efficiencies and thereby, carbon fixation in
, C 3 plants- use the resource, C 4 , C 3 , and CAM plants. How the C 4 and CAM pathways help minimize photorespiration from the additional resources section, to explain this in detail. C 4
