In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
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
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
soil moisture (REW).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
air temperature (T).
air humidity (VPD).
the total leaf area (LAI).
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to high temperature.

De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
