At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in 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.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
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.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.

Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
As plants respire, they release
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in light.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
