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.
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.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.

A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
the total leaf area (LAI).
air temperature (T).
air humidity (VPD).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
soil moisture (REW).
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
