i need help- a science project

Post by animejunkie13 » Wed Nov 23, 2005 7:23 pm

i have a question, :?
i am doing a science project, and im looking for a certain word. i have a partial description, but i cant really find it.
ive used the word before, and it has to do with a plant process. my project is on whether or not a plant can or cannot live in a bottle.
description: (kind of off)
when a plant uses carbon dioxide in the air to keep alive.
(its not photosynthesis)
please help me!!!
:(

the only way plant can use carbon dixoide is by turning it into glucose first via photosynthesis. Sorry, but i don't think this is the right explanation for the word...

Does it include animal and plants that keep inside bottle? If it is so, I think I know the answer...

It would be able to live for a little while, much shorter than its full life.

LOL EmmVeePee. But actually NO! The reductiv cycle of pentaphosphates can not work alone, it needs the first phase of photosynthesis. On your principle, i can say the transformation of 2 molecules of glyceric phosphorilated aldehide into fructoso-6-phospate;)

i dont know if this helps, but is it mychorrizae? it is a symbiotic relationship between plants and fungi.

mychorrizae occur between the roots of some trees and fungi. It helps them extract water from the ground. I don't see the relation between this mutualist symbiosys and the topic

hmm...(its not a contest....) :?
it was....like...GAH....the process when...a plant can..*cant remember*
gah...:GONK:
omgosh...
the bottle was closed, and when we did it, my teacher explained a process when plants can....THATS THE ONLY PART I CANT REMEMBER!!
:GONK:
i hate my memory...
umm....
it has to do with photosynthesis, but it isnt that.
its something else.
photosynthesis needs to happen BEFORE the process im talking about can hapen.
i cant remember what it was though...
