Explain how limiting factors affect the rate of photosynthesis, including graphical interpretation (limited to one factor)
HT ONLY: Explain how the limiting factors of photosynthesis interact, inc graphical interpretation (two/three factors)

HT ONLY: Explain how limiting factors are important to the economics of greenhouses, including data interpretation
HT ONLY: Explain and use inverse proportion in the context of photosynthesis
Required practical 5: investigate the effect of light intensity on the rate of photosynthesis using an aquatic organism such as pondweed
