About BSB - - Contact BSB Bear Springs Blossom news are global news. News that are updated, accurate, not manipulated, just the latest news. World news because we all need to live on this one planet, international news with conservation news headlines. Conservation of Earth is only possible with an updated nature education. Nature conservation to protect the future of humans is our goal. BSB Earth news provide information to update your conservation education which can reduce the impact of climate change, can give people a happier life, can people give a more secure future
BSB conservation includes Biology and bio-chemistry: Photosynthesis is the most important reaction on Earth. Without photosynthesis, life on Earth as we know it, would not exist. Environmental education explains what is going on in Earth's environment, in the recycling world. BSB offers news on environmental issues, to see the big picture, to have a better life. Updated conservation news help to stay up to date, to have the information for educated decisions. Bear Springs Blossom Breaking conservation news on nature conservation that report violations on air pollution, water pollution. BSB breaking news has to report bad behavior, destruction of nature, polluting air, soil and water, all the time. News on Ocean conservation + Water conservation is needed for protection of all life, flora + fauna on Earth. News on environmental changes in oceans worldwide hint to the coming changes for humans. Read BSB conservation news online about how to secure your future, how to stay alive with violent weather, floods, earthquakes storms. Nature conservation news tells you about Earth' environment. Environmental news to protect air + water + soil + food. BSB-research published in these news helps to keep Nature beautiful + to secure our future! BSB Conservation education biology online: Humans need Nature conservation to stay healthy, protected from chemical pollution. Nature Conservation offers education on how to protect air + water + soil + food + wildlife + domestic animals. Millions of years earth balanced a natural environment, changed earthquake pattern caused by climate change. Nature conservation news tells you about Earth' health. Environmental news to protect air + water + soil + food. BSB-research published in these news helps to keep Nature beautiful + to secure our future + to give people a better life!
Care for Earth to have a safe future

Photosynthesis Conservation education Science Biology Botany: a plant leaf is a factory producing oxygen with photosynthesis
conservation education online: plant leaf - nature perfection, protection needed, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia

We just try to give you a little glimpse
how amazingly Nature works.
To learn more: Email us!

Millions of chemical reactions + processes in every plant:
Every moment - inside uncountable amounts of cells

Photosynthesis is the most important
light-dependent reaction on Earth!

Everybody knows what a leaf looks like ...
Conservation education online: Distant learning with BSB: Photosynthesis is the most important light-dependent reaction on Earth! All life forms that breath in oxygen depend on photosynthesis
plant leaf in fall, chlorophyll dies off when too cold, updated nature education - how to conserve earth plant leaf juniperus ashei - nature perfection, leaf and fruit, updated conservation education - online and informative speeches
Without Photosynthesis would be NO oxygen on Earth!
What would happen if we breath without getting oxygen?
But did you ever think about how a leaf looks inside?
You will be surprised!
BSB conservation education: plant leaf inside facts: photosynthesis needed for life on Earth, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
There are different parts of a leaf involved in photosynthesis
Mostly we think about green leaves, but most of leaf cells, the cell material have no color.
When we see green, we see the chlorophyll molecules in the chloroplasts
plant leaf inside facts: chlorophyll, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
Chlorophyll inside a leaf

In a leaf are many different types of cells, each cell for a different task
All these cells are needed - a perfect plan for life
plant leaf inside facts: chlorophyll, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
Scientist name these layers:
Top = cuticle layer + epidermal cells
Middle = mesophyll cells with the chloroplasts
Bottom = cuticle layer, epidermal cells, and stomates
The function of the stomates is to regulate the input and output of carbon dioxyde CO2 and oxygen O2

Let's have a look at the Mesophyll Cells
plant leaf inside facts: chlorophyll, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
Two different mesophyll cells are in a typical leaf.
Many in the palisade parenchyma region others in the spongy parenchyma region.
Look at a chloroplast: They are tiny, but you can see them under a microscope.
conservation education online: plant leaf inside facts: chloroplasts, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
When we look what is inside a chloroplast we will see the stroma and the grana.
That's where photosynthesis happens
Inside a plant leaf: BSB Conservation education explains how chloroplast works, updates your conservation education knowledge - offers plant encyclopedia, how green leaves works and why photosynthesis is the most important chemical reaction on Earth
The outer layer of the thylakoids are home to chlorophyll and other pigments. Photons, sent out by our sun, hit the pigments and electrons are getting loose to provide the energy for the complicated process of photosynthesis.
Often we hear the word photosynthetic membrane describing a thylakoid.
BSB botany: plant leaf inside facts: granum important for photosynthesis inside of chlorophyll, updated nature education - plant encyclopedia
When you look at these flat pancake shaped pieces, scientists call them thylakoids.
A stack of thylakoids is a granum / plural grana
You see the hose-connection? The name for these connections is stroma lamellae.

The membrane and the space inside it, is where the light-dependent reaction takes place.

The light independent reactions happen in the stroma.

Chloroplasts are carbohydrate factories using sun light as energy.
They have their own genetic material, they can multiply!

As working materials chloroplasts need:
carbon dioxide
These raw materials allow the chloroplast factory to produce food for the plant,
plants all mammals need for food, for oxygen!

NASA has now a satellite up there who can watch our planet breathe
When plants photosynthesize, they use energy from sunlight to turn carbon dioxide from the air into sugars used to live and grow. In doing so, they give off a fluorescent light - a glow that can't be seen with the naked eye, but that can be seen with the right instruments. More photosynthesis translates into more fluorescence, meaning that the plants are very productive in taking up carbon dioxide. The amount of carbon dioxide taken up by plants is called 'gross primary productivity', and is the largest part of the global carbon cycle

BSB Conservation education native plants of Texas: salvia coccinea with butterfly, photosynthesis, using carbon dioxide to produce food and oxygen, most life on Earth depends on oxygen. Without photosynthesis, oxygen would not exist on Earth. Nature conservation in its best, food for butterflies, intact food chain
What would a butterfly do
without plants, without oxygen?

Tropical sage with Gulf fritillary

It is very important to protect Nature!
A) Plants on Earth balance our climate
B) provide oxygen, change carbon dioxide
C) store carbon dioxide CO2
D) provide food and protection!!
