Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
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?
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases 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.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
