At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
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.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in light.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
air temperature (T).
the total leaf area (LAI).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
air humidity (VPD).
soil moisture (REW).
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
