  • Limiting Factors Photosynthesis
    • Light
    • Carbon Dioxide
      • the more CO2 available to the plant, the more photosynthesis can occur.
      • Photosynthesis will continue to increase up until a point where it will level off, something else is in short supply- light or incorrect temperature
    • Temperature
      • Since Photosynthesis is an enzyme controlled reaction it will work best at an optimum temperature of (20 Degrees)
      • Temperature above or below the optimum will mean a decrease in the rate of photosynthesis- it is a limiting factor
