- Boards rubbed.

= Senebier is remembered mainly for the extensive evidence he provided, based entirely on the phlogiston theory of chemistry, that carbon dioxide is consumed by plants in the production of oxygen. He also found that the amount of oxygen produced is roughly proportional to the amount of carbon dioxide available to the plant and determined that the green fleshy parts of leaves (the parenchyma) are the sites where carbon dioxide is transformed into oxygen. This discovery by Senebier regarding gases is regarded as one of the last of the important early discoveries in the unraveling of the fundamental chemical processes of photosynthesis. DSB, vol. 11 and 12, p.308f; Poggendorf II, p.904; cf. Cole p.495.
