When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
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 annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in light.
As plants respire, they release
Photosynthesis releases oxygen whereas respiration releases CO2.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to excess of light.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
soil moisture (REW).
the total leaf area (LAI).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
air temperature (T).
air humidity (VPD).
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
