Photosynthesis-the food manufacturing process in green plants that combine carbon dioxide and water in the presence of light to make sugar and oxygen. Formula is: 6CO2 + 6H2O Kcal ® C6H12O6 + 6O2 Respiration-the process through which plant leaves, stems and roots consume oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Plants produce much more oxygen through photosynthesis than they use through respiration. Absorption-the process by which plant roots take in water and air.
Transpiration-the process by which plants lose water from leaves and stems through evaporation. Translocation-the process by which food and nutrients are moved within a plant from one plant part to another. Reproduction-the plant process that increases plant numbers usually from seeds. Osmosis – process by which minerals and water enter the plant through cell walls.
Stages of Growth Juvenile-when plant first starts to grow from a seed. Reproductive-when plant produces flowers, seeds and fruits. Dormant-when plant rests or grows very little if any.
