The Effect Of Germination On The Cellular Respiration Of Peas

IntroductionCellular respiration is among the growth processes that are sensitive to temperature (Thayer). Organisms obtain energy by breaking down energy storing molecules through the process of cellular respiration (Gedney and Labus). Cellular respiration is performed when oxygen is consumed and carbon dioxide is produced. Temperature greatly affects cellular respiration by reducing the rate of respiration at low, but non-freezing, temperatures and by quickly increasing it as the temperature rises (Saltveit). As the temperature rises past the physiological range, the rate of cellular respiration will begin to decrease and will become more negative as the tissue of the pea draws close to its thermal death point (Saltveit). Plants can grow at a temperature between 4.5 degrees Celsius and 26 degrees Celsius (Thayer). Temperature is a controlling factor in the growth of plants and is extremely impo
