1: Other organisms besides plants that use Photosynthesis.

2: Sea Slug | there is a sea slug called eastern emerald Elysia. They absorb the chlorophyll from the algae that they ingest and use it to photosynthesize their own energy. They can survive up to 10 months without ingesting any additional sources of algae and living off the sugars photosynthesized. | Chlorophyll is the structure that conducts photosynthesis.

3: Euglena | Euglena and other euglenoids are best known for their curious mixotrophic ability to shift from being green phototrophs in sunlight to being colorless heterotrophs. Not all euglenoid species chloroplasts but they all have flagella so they can hunt food. It is believed that the first photosynthetic euglenoids acquired chloroplasts during their evolutionary history by eating and retaining photosynthetic bacteria through endosymbiosis. | endosymbiosis is the structure that conducts photosynthesis.

4: cyanobacteria | Most cyanobacteria are highly sensitive to sulfide toxicity, and brief exposures to low concentrations cause complete and irreversible cessation of CO2 photoassimilation. Resistance of photosystem II to sulfide toxicity, allowing for oxygenic photosynthesis under sulfide, is found in cyanobacteria exposed to low H2S concentrations in various hot springs. When H2S levels exceed 200 M another type of adaptation involving partial induction of anoxygenic photosynthesis, operating in concert with partially inhibited oxygenic photosynthesis, is found in cyanobacterial strains isolated from both hot springs and hypersaline cyanobacterial mats. | Synechocystis spp. is the structure that conducts photosynthesis

5: Algae | algae designates a most diverse and ancient group of organisms that is polyphyletic by evolution and artificial by taxonomy. Its only common feature is the ability to perform aerobic photosynthesis. Algae range by size from tiny cyanobacterial cells of the picoplankton to the giant kelps dominating rocky coastlines. They settle most diverse aquatic habitats such as hot springs and Arctic ice, live on and in rocks and various organisms, travel by air currents for thousands of miles and can be found in groundwater. | Chloroplast is the structure that conducts photosynthesis
