Storyboard Text

  • Light, CO2, & water enter the chloroplast
  • Light reaction occurs in the thylakoid, making ATP & NADPH for the Calvin Cycle. It produces oxygen.
  • Energy
  • O2
  • glucose
  • Calvin Cycle occurs in the stroma, using ATP & NADPH to reduce CO2 to sugar.
  • Mitochondria: uses O2 to drive the generation of ATP by extracting sugars, fats, and other fuels to create energy for the cell
  • Chloroplasts: convert solar energy to chemical energy by absorbing sunlight and using it to drive the synthesis of organic compounds such as sugars from carbon dioxide and water
  • ATP powers cellular work in both plant and animal cells.
  • Specific enzymes breakdown each macro molecule, providing us with the energy we need for cellular activities.
  • The food we eat contains macro molecules (lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids).
  • Carb
  • Fat
  • Protein
  • Photosynthesis Photosynthesis converts light energy to the chemical energy of food.
  • Herbivores consume the energy and sugar produced by the plant, making them the primary consumers or secondary consumers.
  • Plants convert sunlight to energy, making them the primary producers.
  • Once I die, I decompose in the soil so plants can use my nutrients to start the process all over again.
  • Energy in the Cell Plant cells produce their own energy while animal cells must consume organic sources to get energy.
  • Survival depends on inherited traits.
  • The giraffe with the short neck will die because it is unable to reach the food source. It will not produce offspring, so this short neck trait will dissipate.
  • Energy and Macro Molecule Usage by OrganismsCells store energy obtained by macro molecules to maintain it for long-term usage.
  • Abiotic Effect:Poor soil causes a Macaw's food source to diminish, thus reducing the population.
  • Death and emigration decrease population.
  • Birth and Immigration increase population
  • Energy in the EnvironmentEnergy circulates throughout the environment.
  • Predators eat the primary consumers, thus receiving their meal's energy.
  • The giraffe with the tall neck is able to reach the food source, therefore, it will survive and produce offspring with this trait.
  • Organism SurvivalAdaptations enhance an organisms survival and reproduction in a specific environment.
  • Population DynamicsImmigration, emigration, an organism's birth and death, and other biotic and abiotic factors influence population dynamics.
  • Biotic Effect:Humans cut down trees (a Macaw's natural habitat) to make way for civilization, reducing the population.
