Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
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.
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.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
