In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
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.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
As plants respire, they release
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.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
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 excess of CO2.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of light.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
Photosynthesis of a tree canopy is driven or influenced by
air humidity (VPD).
photosynthetically active solar radiation (PAR).
the total leaf area (LAI).
soil moisture (REW).
air temperature (T).
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
