Most food chains start with photosynthesizers.

This desire to discover new ways of producing clean energy has lead scientists at Stanford University and other universities to discover a way to harness the electricity produced during the process of photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis: testing a variegated leaf for starch

Prediction : I predict that as I increase the distance between the light source and the Canadian Pondweed (reducing the light intensity), the volume of oxygen produced within the time limit (the measure of the rate of photosynthesis) will decrease.


Photosynthesis, the starting point for energy's travels through life

The plant may stop photosynthesising when the pondweed is at the furthest distance from the lamp (8cm).
