photosynthesis!

Post by chenglorraine » Mon Dec 18, 2006 4:39 am

I was thinking the other day.....that whether or not the level of carbon dioxide would be lower in winter than in summer......coz green plants have no leaves (i.e. chloroplasts) to carry out photosynthesis in winter and hence less carbon dioxide would be taken in for photosynthesis.
Correct me if I am wrong!
Thx......

I think you mean higher in winter, not lower. Sorry, I just noticed that. but that does make sense. I don't know for sure that it would be, but the hypothesis is interesting. I would have to agree with you.

Good thinking :D

Think hemispheres... What is the season in Australia? Beside most of the photosynthesis seems to be carried out by algae and rain forest (no seasonnality between the tropics).

Yes, with the hemispheres it probably does even out. However, is there an equal amount of plants in both hemispheres that would be affected by seasons?

Are you kidding me? We have cars that are left to warm up in the morning to compensate! :lol:

Might be his car takes CO2 and makes ethanol for fuel... :lol: :lol:

==================================

The seasonal change is compensated as there will be opposite season in other hemisphear. And co2 is balanced.

photosynthesis part 2

Post by chenglorraine » Tue Dec 19, 2006 8:58 am

As a result, would there be LESS carbon dioxide in warmer countries (e.g. Australia) than in colder countries (e.g. UK)?
