Chlorophyll is a photosensitive green pigment found in plants; it absorbs light energy, thus plays a vital role in photosynthesis.
Human activity increases the greenhouse effect and leads to global warming.
Water is a very stable compound of hydrogen and oxygen, vital for all known forms of life. In nature it occurs in liquid, solid and gaseous state.
ATP is the main source of energy for cells.
Alpha-D-glucose is one of the stereoisomers of glucoses, specifically the D-glucoses.
Eukaryotic cells contain a number of organelles.
This animation demonstrates the anatomy of tulips, daffodils and snowdrops.
Colourless, odourless, heavier-than-air gas. Necessary for the photosynthesis of plants.
The animations demonstrates the structure of a typical flower.
This animation demonstrates how horse chestnut trees change throughout the seasons
A colourless, odourless gas, an important component of the atmosphere, indispensable to sustain terrestrial life.
The oxygen cycle describes the movement of oxygen within its three main reservoirs.
This animation explains active and passive transport processes occurring through cell membranes
