Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to high temperature.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
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.
As plants respire, they release
Photosynthesis releases oxygen whereas respiration releases CO2.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in light.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in soil temperature.
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.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
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.
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.
