The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in light.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
In some part of the stems, some photosynthesis may also occur.
De-hardening in spring involves gradual re-hydration of the cells, recovery of photosynthetic capacity and a tight control of water loss.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
At low air humidity, a plant closes its stomata to prevent transpiration. The action also decreases photosynthesis
Transpiration decreases as air becomes drier.
Plant respiration captures CO2.
Unlike photosynhesis, plant respiration captures atmospheric oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
As plants respire, they release
Photosynthesis releases oxygen whereas respiration releases CO2.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to high temperature
exposure to excess of CO2
exposure to excess of light
exposure to shortage of soil moisture
