About this unit

This unit is part of the Biology library. Browse videos, articles, and exercises by topic.
Light: it's not just for photosynthesis! Plants use light cues to regulate many aspects of their growth and development. For instance, have you ever seen a plant bend its stem towards a window or light? Learn why this happens at the level of light receptors and hormones!
