The leaf is where photosynthesis occurs. This produces food for the plant.
-The bottom portion of the pistil enlarges to form the ovary.
-The ovary contains ovules, which each contain one egg.
-When fertilization occurs the ovary grows into the fruit or vegetable.
-The ovules become the seeds of the fruit.
-The petals are leaf like and usually colorful.
- Petals attract pollinators.
- If a flower does not have colorful petals, it likely relies on wind pollination.
-The pistil is the female reproductive part of a flower where pollination takes place.
-The pistil has three parts: the stigma, style and the ovary.
The root anchors a plant in the ground.

Is a green pigment that is found in plant cells that that traps light energy.

Light-dependent reactions occur on membranes.
Light and water are required for this process.
Energy storage molecules are formed.
Oxygen gas is made as a waste product.
The process in which plants take water and CO2 into O2 and glucose(food for the plant), using light energy.
