My chemistry teacher included them as plant cells, so I did too!)

Animal cells and plant cells have features in common, such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes. Plant and algal cells also have a cell wall, and often have chloroplasts and a permanent vacuole. Bacterial and yeast cells have different structures to animal and plant cells.

When plant cells divide, a new cell wall is formed between the two dividing cells to separate them.

Photosynthesis is one of the most important biological events that occurs on this planet. It is defined as the process by which plants use solar energy to convert the raw materials (CO2) and water (H2O) into glucose (C6H12O6) for use as an energy source. Also during this process, gas is produced as the byproduct that all aerobically-respiring organisms (such as ourselves) are dependent upon. The general chemical equation for is:

Chloroplasts are the sites of photosynthesis in plants

Following photosynthesis, the glucose constructed within plant cells can then be used as a source of energy and materials for cellular activities such as growth, reproduction and the synthesis of more complex materials such as starch, proteins, and fats. The existence of all naturally-occurring molecules (any molecule containing carbon, , and oxygen), and therefore, all sources of energy, can be traced back to the process of photosynthesis. This concept will become very important as we study the flow of energy through ecosystems and the use of energy by humans later in the course.

However, in plant cells, vacuoles are often very large and often take up much of the space in the cell.

All animals and plants are made of cells. Animal cells and plant cells have features in common, such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes. Plant cells also have a cell wall, and often have chloroplasts and a permanent vacuole. Note that cells may be specialised to carry out a particular function.

You should be careful to notice that the process of cellular respiration is essentially the reverse of photosynthesis. The catabolic breakdown (burning) of glucose requires the presence of oxygen and yields energy and . This process is generally the same when any organic molecule is respired (or burned) whether it is glucose in a living animal or plant cell, wood in a fire, or gasoline in a car. The breakdown of any energy storing chemical releases carbon dioxide as a byproduct, which may then be used by plants in the photosynthetic process.

The autumn foliage of some trees show only yellow colors. Others, like many oaks, display mostly browns. All these colors are due to the mixing of varying amounts of the chlorophyll residue and other pigments in the leaf during the fall season.

and is the site of photosynthesis.

As the fall colors appear, other changes are taking place. At the point where the stem of the leaf is attached to the tree, a special layer of cells develops and gradually severs the tissues that support the leaf. At the same time, the tree seals the cut, so that when the leaf is finally blown off by the wind or falls from its own weight, it leaves behind a leaf scar.
