A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
As plants respire, they release
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
The effect of light on photosynthesis has a clear saturating pattern: more light results in more photosynthesis but eventually leaves cannot take full advantage of all the extra light.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.

Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.

To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
