Provide an original response to the question below from the reading. Your
response should be:
A minimum of 250 words
Create your response in word or some other text editor so you can check spelling
Be in your own words! Even if you are using information from the text, you
should rephrase it so that it is not a copy paste. I would rather you put things in
your own words than be exact – this is intended for you to evaluate the topic
and gain experience with talking about biological concepts!
Include terminology from the text (without copying it directly)
Submit in .doc, .docx or .pdf format only
In Chapter 4 and 5 of the Concepts of Biology text, we focus on energy sources
and use. Respond to the following two prompts relating to these two chapters:
Review the concept of light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis in section
5.2. Also, review this video: https://youtu.be/O0PawPSdk28. Given what you know
about photosynthesis, what do you think may occur given a change in the
available light to plants on earth, where only the green and red wavelengths of
light are available to plants? Include a bit of information about how light is used
by plants for photosynthesis.
Review section 4.1 and 4.4 regarding glycolysis and fermentation,
respectively. Compare and contrast the two processes including the components
that are involved in each. When you think about the concept of fermentation,
what are some benefits of conducting this type of energy production and provide
two examples of organisms that use it.
II/ Perhaps you have heard about the issues surrounding our
overwhelming use of plastics in packaging and other materials. Turns
out we may be saved by the powerful role of enzymes – who knew?!
Navigate to this video regarding a recently discovered plastic-eating
enzyme: https://youtu.be/4l-T_nwGnrU and view the 5 minute interview
regarding the enzyme discovery.
What questions arise as you watch the video? In thinking about a
question you have regarding your review of this video, do a bit of
research to try and find an additional video or article that
expands upon the information provided here. (Don’t get too
crazy, just to a little online exploration for a related topic that
pique’s your interest regarding the role of enzymes in providing
possible relief to our modern day anthropogenic activities).
In your initial post, provide a link to an additional resource (video
or article) and write a brief description about the resource and
how it relates to the topic
Remember that follow-up responses should contribute to
meaningful online discussions!
