Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Chloroplast and Mitochondria in Cellular Energy
Conditions of Use:

Rating

In this seminar you will use images to differentiate the structure of a chloroplast and mitochondria. You will follow an animation to learn about the two essential processes that take place in each cell organelle to accurately determine the importance of structure and function. You will also analyze data from mice to determine the effects of exercise and performance enhancing drugs on the presence of mitochondria in a cell, or extract chlorophyll from various levels to examine its function outside a chloroplast.StandardsBIO.A.3.1.1 Describe the fundamental roles of plastids (e.g., chloroplasts) and mitochondria in energy transformations.BIO.A.3.2.1 Compare and contrast the basic transformation of energy during photosynthesis and cellular respiration.BIO.A.3.2.2 Describe the role of ATP in biochemical reactions

Through a teacher-led discussion, students realize that the food energy plants obtain comes from sunlight via the plant process of photosynthesis. They learn what photosynthesis is, at an age-appropriate level of detail and vocabulary, and then begin to question how we know that photosynthesis occurs, if we can't see it happening. Elodea is a common water plant that students can use to directly observe evidence of photosynthesis. When Elodea is placed in a glass beaker near a good light source, bubbles of oxygen will be released as products of photosynthesis. By counting the number of bubbles that rise to the surface in a five-minute period, students can compare the photosynthetic activity of Elodea in the presence of high and low light levels.

PHOTOSYNTHESE (2015)
Rating

Kein anderer chemischer Vorgang ist für die Existenz des Lebens auf der Erde so wichtig wie die Photosynthese. Die Photosynthese wandelt Licht in chemische Energie um. Diese Mini Lecture zeigt die grundlegenden Abläufe in den Chloroplasten von Pflanzen auf - mit Auszügen von Vorträgen der Laureaten John Walker, Hartmut Michel und Steven Chu.

No other chemical process is as crucial for the existence of life as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy. This Mini Lecture deals with the basic processes taking place in the chloroplasts of plants with lecture snippets of John Walker, Hartmut Michel, and Steven Chu.

Got oxygen? Got food? Well, then you've got to have photosynthesis! This video will break down photosynthesis into the "photo" part (capturing light energy and storing it) and the "synthesis" part (fixing carbon into carbohydrates). It's all a bit complicated, but take a deep breath and let's find out where that oxygen comes from.
