The energy and carbon requirements of the autotrophic organism is obtained by the process of photosynthesis.
It is defined as the process by which autotrophs take in substances from the outside surroundings and convert them into stored forms of energy.
This substance is taken in the form of carbon dioxide and water, which is converted into carbohydrates in the presence of sunlight and chlorophyll.
The main purpose of carbohydrates is to provide energy to the plant. The carbohydrates are not utilized immediately; but they are stored in the form of starch, which serves as an internal energy reserve.
The stored energy can be used as and when required by the plant.Answered by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago
