At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to high temperature
exposure to excess of CO2
exposure to excess of light
exposure to shortage of soil moisture
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
As plants respire, they release
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
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
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in light.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
soil moisture (REW).
air temperature (T).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
air humidity (VPD).
the total leaf area (LAI).
