At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in light.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
As plants respire, they release
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.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to excess of light.
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.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
