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
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
air temperature (T).
the total leaf area (LAI).
soil moisture (REW).
air humidity (VPD).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases 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.
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.
