Paul Andersen explains the process of Photosynthesis in a 12m 27s tutorial:
Also IB 2.9 & 8.3 – Photosynthesis Part 1: Introduction to photosynthesis including ways to measure the rate and limiting factors of photosynthesis in 10m from Dan Rott. Or here is Photosynthesis part 1 of a series of tutorials, specific to IB Biology from Alex Lee.
Click on ‘Photosynthesis’ to see a detailed Interactive Animation from Wiley that covers all the reactions of Photosynthesis.
LIGHT DEPENDENT REACTIONS
Two fantastic animated tutorials from McGraw Hill Education – photosynthesis electron transport and photophosporylation (cyclic & non-cyclic) – both are a bit more detailed than we need but they’re good.
This animation also shows how PSII and PSI reduce NADP: here.
Mr W sings Photosynthesis – the LDR.
LIGHT INDEPENDENT REACTIONS (CALVIN CYCLE)
The Calvin cycle – a fantastic animated tutorial from McGraw Hill Education.
And here’s an animated, narrated tutorial on harvesting light – PSI & PSII in photosynthesis – from Sinauer Associates.
Photosynthesis – Light-independent stage, a 5m video from Mr Exham, and here is a 5m TED-Ed lesson: Nature’s smallest factory: The Calvin cycle and this is IB 2.9 & 8.3 Photosynthesis Part 3: LIR in 11m from Dan Rott.
Mr W sings Photosynthesis – the LIR.
BioNInja has a great summary of the lollipop experiment, including a nice animation.
The Calvin Experiments – an animation that takes you through the 3 techniques he used to investigate the LIR.
