Term Photosynthesis
Definition

Process through which organisms that contain chlorophyll, such as green plants, algae and some bacteria, capture light energy from the sun (solar radiation) and transform it into chemical energy. It is the foundation of today’s life on earth, as almost all of the energy consumed in the biosphere comes from photosynthesis.
