Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in light.
the changes in soil temperature.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
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.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
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.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
the total leaf area (LAI).
soil moisture (REW).
air temperature (T).
air humidity (VPD).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
