Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
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 high temperature.
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
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
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
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.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
