Photoinhibition means the decrease in photosynthesis due to
exposure to excess of light.
exposure to excess of CO2.
exposure to high temperature.
exposure to shortage of soil moisture.
High soil moisture leads to decreased photosynthesis.
In boreal upland forests, low soil moisture decreases the rate of photosynthesis.
Då VPD ökar blir assimilationen långsammare eftersom växten tillsluter sina klyvöppningar.
When there is low soil moisture, plants close its stomata pores which then decreases photosynthesis.
As VPD increases, photosynthesis decreases due to the closure of the stomata.
Respiration is a cellular process to obtain chemical energy from
the oxidation of plant tissues.
the oxidation of organic molecules.
the oxidation of water.
the oxidation soil nutrients.
Photosynthesis of a shoot can be measured by enclosing it within a chamber and following the change of

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.
The air is moist if VPD (Vapour Pressure Deficit) is high.
The stage of acclimation at any given day depends on the temperatures experienced by the plant during the previous months.
The stage of acclimation at any given day depends on the temperatures experienced by the plant during the previous 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.
Photosynthesis shuts down if the temperature of previous night has been lower than
In trees, approximately half of the carbon bound in photosynthesis is used for construction of new biomass.
Plants open its stomata to avoid losing too much water.
