Plants are called producers due to their ability to create complex biological compounds like glucose by processing carbon dioxide, sunlight and water. Plants also produce oxygen, contributing the atmosphere that all anim... More »

In biology, producers are organisms that produce organic compounds for the entire ecosystem. These organisms are at the beginning of the food chain; they can produce nutrients and compounds that other organisms can utili... More »

The primary producers of savannas are grasses and scattered trees and shrubs. Producers are organisms in a food chain that produce their own energy and nutrients rather that feeding on other organisms. More »

During photosynthesis, plants make glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water. To do this, they need energy in the form of light from the sun. While plants use glucose as energy, oxygen enters the atmosphere for us... More »

Respiration, in which energy is released from carbohydrates for metabolic needs, takes place in plants through a process which can be expressed in a word equation as: glucose + oxygen = energy + carbon dioxide + water. T... More »

For photosynthesis to occur, plants need sunlight, water, carbon dioxide and chlorophyll. Through the process of photosynthesis plants convert light energy into chemical energy. They use this energy to make food which th... More »

Photosynthesis can only occur when a plant has access to water, carbon dioxide, sunlight and chlorophyll. Plant cells naturally produce chlorophyll, and they draw carbon dioxide directly from the air. Water and sunlight ... More »
