This is a comparison between photosynthesis and chemosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process that can take place in either a terrestrial or aquatic setting. It involves plants and algae using the sun's energy to convert carbon dioxide into organic compounds that sustains life. Chemosynthesis on the other hand does not use the sun's energy, but rather energy store within certain chemicals. The harnessed energy is also used to convert carbon dioxide into organic compounds.
