Balanced photosynthesis l.jpg

Photo

High energy compounds

Synthesis

Real time

Harvests light energy

Uses harvested energy

Balanced photosynthesis


Unbalanced photosynthesis l.jpg

Unbalanced photosynthesis

Photo

High energy compounds

Synthesis

Real time

bright light produces lots of energy

low-capacity biochemical pathways use it slowly

Potential for destruction.
