Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in 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 capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
Early spring is a tricky time for plants due to the combination of sunny but still quite cold days.
As plants respire, they release
Carbon becomes locked as part of the accumulating plant biomass as plants grow.
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
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.
