Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of CO2.
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.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
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.
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.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
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.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
As plants respire, they release
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
