What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
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.
As plants respire, they release
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.

When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in light.
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.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
