Professor Govindjee's site on photosynthesis. For older students mostly but
has some links and other educational material for older kids.
(Arizona State University) Photosynthesis Center
This is a very good site and very complete with lots of information and links.
It may be more for advanced students or scientists than for elementary or high
school (but there is a good links section with educational links for K-12; FT
Exploring is one of them). If you are doing research on photosynthesis you should
Photosynthesis Page of the Online Biology Page Very
good complete overview of photosynthesis for older students.
The Online Biology Page that this page is a small part of is great with a
lot of information.
is from MIT's Biology
Hypertextbook. Another good source of biology information. Also for
older students - highschool and above.
Introduction to Photosynthesis and Its Applications Good
article for older students by Wim Vermaas Professor, Department of Plant Biology,
and Center for the Study of Early Events in Photosynthesis Arizona State University.
a little bit on photosynthesis and phytoplankton - which we introduce to you in
our page on Energy Pyramids.
the Sun's Energy A
nice teaching unit from Teaching Treasures (see Education
Links) on Solar Energy in nature and technology (one of the themes of my website)
with information and activities.
nice simplistic little graphic demo on photosynthesis basics from NOVA online.
Photosynthetic Process A
lot of good information here. Also for older students. I have learned a
lot from Govindjee's writings. It is an honor to be linked to by him also.
A Natural Process Involving Solar Energy A good explanation
of the process with my kind of illustrations (which not everyone would consider
Tutorial from the Biology Project It's a good tutorial
from my old school, the University of Arizona. An excellent way to study
and learn. The first link above goes right to the Photosynthesis Problem
sets which are a small part of a wonderful site called
THE BIOLOGY PROJECT
- an online interactive resource for learning biology developed at the University
of Arizona. A lot more than photosynthesis is covered there.
- Energy and Life - from Fundamentals of Physical Geography A
brief overview page of photosynthesis and respiration as part of a much larger
site on the Fundamentals of Physical Geography. The site is very good and has
a really good glossary section so I included it even though the photosynthesis
part is small.
Chemical Charousel: A Trip Around the Carbon Cycle
Photosynthesis is part of the Carbon cycle of life, so this counts
as an important page for someone studying photosynthesis.
Sustainability of Ecosystems A tutorial made for 10th grade
biology, but can be used for a much wider age span. Covers photosynthesis, energy
cycles, and carbon and oxygen. A quote from the Web site's intro: "Your job
is to determine the process of photosynthesis as it relates to the cycling of
energy, carbon and oxygen through abiotic and biotic components." Uses a
page from Flying Turtle Exploring as part of the tutorial, but it's still good.
Light on Photosynthesis A couple of good images and a little
text on a background that makes it a little hard to read.
