Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to excess of CO2.

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.
Leaf area increases with stand age, resulting in a decreasing rate of photosynthesis in the stand.
An increment in leaf area increases also the photosynthesis of a tree stand. However, the relationship is saturating.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.

Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
As plants respire, they release
Photosynthesis releases oxygen whereas respiration releases CO2.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in light.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in air temperature.
