Question:

True/false question

Leaf area increases with stand age, resulting in a decreasing rate of photosynthesis in the stand.

Answer hidden

Response:

User answerFeedback
False

An increment in leaf area increases also the photosynthesis of a tree stand. However, the relationship is saturating.

Plant respiration captures CO2.

Answer hidden

Response:

User answerFeedback
False

Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
