Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
As plants respire, they release
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
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.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in light.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in air temperature.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
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.
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.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
soil moisture (REW).
air temperature (T).
air humidity (VPD).
the total leaf area (LAI).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
