How Light Effects Plants 
By Stephan Simeone      Michael Bousquet       Alison Van Hemelrijck
Welcome to the Biology I Accelerated "How Light Effects Plants" webpage. This site will explain the differences between natural and artificial light-primarily incandescent and fluorescent lighting and their effect on plants. Also, an in depth look at how much light a plant needs will be provided, and we will investigate if plants can thrive and grow in total daylight of each kind of artificial light. All information from our project can be found from the links on the menu below, further below are their descriptions. Turn up your speakers to hear the fantastic music!


Brief Discription of each menu item:

Information




Background-What we know about plants and artificial lights before the project began.
Hypothesis-Our educated guess as to what light will work best.
Procedure-How to set up the experiment.
Materials-What is needed to do the experiment.

Results

Incandescent Total Daylight-The results of the plants with timed incandescent lightingthat is on for 24 hours a day.
Greenhouse-The results of the plants with timed natural lighting.
Gallery-Pictures of the plants and us!
Graphs-Illustrations of how the plants grew, and what light was most effective in growing the plants the fastest.
