From Energy to Biomass
This post will be an introduction to functioning ecosystems for QCE Biology.
3.2.1 – Functioning Ecosystems
- Sequence and explain the transfer and transformation of solar energy into biomass as it flows through biotic components of an ecosystem, including
- Converting light to chemical energy
- Producing biomass and interacting with components of the carbon cycle
How Does Energy Flow Through an Ecosystem?
This video will go through the flow of energy and matter through ecosystems.
This is an additional video on energy flow in ecosystems which you may find helpful.
This video goes through photosynthesis which is a process used by plants to convert energy into glucose.
