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.

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.

(Note - although this organelle is also found animal cells, the vacuoles from plant cells are drastically bigger and play a much more important role in the processes of the cell.
