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
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in light.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
