High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
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.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of CO2.

exposure to high temperature.
