Question: you know how there's photosynthesis? is there a name for that happening with sea grass and other marine plants?

  1. It is still called photosynthesis even if they are marine plants doing it.
    Photosynthesis is used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy from the sun into chemical energy that can be used as food to fuel the organism’s activities.

    Carbon dioxide and water are used by plants to make carbohydrates such as sugars. Oxygen is also released as a waste product from the process which is great for us oxygen breathing animals!
    Plants, algae and some bacterial species perform photosynthesis. They are all called photoautotrophs because they can feed themselves on their own photosynthetic products. Animals and fungi do not photosynthesize.

    Hope this helps!! 🙂
