The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in light.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in soil temperature.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Leaf area increases with stand age, resulting in a decreasing rate of photosynthesis in the stand.
An increment in leaf area increases also the photosynthesis of a tree stand. However, the relationship is saturating.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
As plants respire, they release
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
air humidity (VPD).
air temperature (T).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
soil moisture (REW).
the total leaf area (LAI).
