What is the source of carbon that is assimilated in photosynthesis?
The rate of respiration decreases with temperature.
Almost half of the total biomass of a tree may be allocated to the roots.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
In general, the more carbon dioxide that is available to the plant, the faster the rate of photosynthesis - if other factors are favourable.
Carbon capture is performed by the green parts of plants via photosynthesis.
A complex microbiota lives belowground, releasing carbon dioxide to the soil.
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.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
Plant closes its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
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.
The annual cycle of photosynthesis mainly follows
the changes in air temperature.
the changes in light.
the changes in soil temperature.
the changes in CO2 concentration.
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.
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.
To transform atmospheric CO2 into organic molecules, plants can use the energy from
