"Understand the role of inorganic ions within plants."
- Nitrate Ions are involved in the formation of amino acids and in turn DNA.
- Calcium Ions form calcium pectate which forms the middle lamella holding cells together.
- Magnesium Ions are the central ion in chlorophyll, allowing photosynthesis to take place.
- Phosphate Ions make ADP and ATP which are important for all functions.
