Briefly summarize what happens in the light reactions:

Where do they take place? 
What inputs are required?  
Are they enzymatic or electronic?  
About how many steps are required?  
What are the products produced?  
In one brief sentence, summarize what the light reactions accomplish:  
 

Briefly summarize what happens in the Calvin (C-3 reactions) cycle:

Where does it take place?  
What inputs are required?  
Is it enzymatic or electronic?

Make a sketch of a chloroplast and label its parts completely. Your diagram should include: outer membrane, inner membrane, thylakoids, stroma, nucleoid, 70S ribosome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having finished your sketch and labels, next to each label write in the main function of each labeled area.

Now with this complete, tell what the C-4 and CAM plants have evolved to complement the C-3 reactions...

C-4 and CAM Plants have added this 
C-4 Plants separate the C-4 and C-3 reactions by 
CAM Plants separate the C-4 and C-3 reactions by 
The selective advantage for these adaptations in C-4 plants is 
The selective advantage for these adaptations in CAM plants is
