The Pineapple(a CAM plant)

Anatomy of a Pineapple

Pineapples are native to South America. They live in areas of 16°-30° Celsius.

Pineapples are a kind of multiple fruit (meaning it is formed by a bunch of berries or flowers). They are grown out of the ground. Pineapples have two kinds of roots, they have the soil roots and axillary roots. Leaves of pineapples are used to absorb sunlight and allow the plant to intake more water.

Palmetto Beetlex

Sap Beetlexx

Some predators of the pineapple include: the palmetto beetle, the sap beetle, and the larvae of the large moth.

CAM PhotosynthesisVS.C3 Photosynthesis

Diagram of C3 Photosynthesis

C3 Photosynthesis:C3 photosynthesis gets it's name from the CO2 being incorporated into a 3-Carbon compound. The RUBISCO takes up CO2. The leaves are where the photosynthesis takes place. During the day, the stomata open. C3 photosynthesis, under moist and normal lighting, is more efficent than CAM photosynthesis. Trees are a C3 plant. Most plants do C3 photosynthesis.

CAM Photosynthesis:CAM stands for Crassulacean acid metabolism. During the night, the stomata open. The CO2 gets converted into acid and stored in vacuoles. During the day, the stomata close. The acid then gets broken down and the CO2 goes to RUBISCO (for photosynthesis). CAM photosynthesis has better water efficentcy than C3 photosynthesis. Pineapples are a CAM plant.
