Limiting factors in Photosynthesis

HideShow resource information
How is the rate of photosynthesis usually measured?
Vol of oxygen released by the plant; vol of CO2 taken up by the plant
1 of 5
What is the light compensation point?
Amount of CO2 absorbed is balanced by the oxygen absorbed and CO2 produced by respiration (no net gas exchange)
2 of 5
What does CO2 concentration affect?
Rubisco activity in the light independent reaction
3 of 5
How does temperature affect photosynthesis?
A temperature above the optimum results in rates levelling off and declining due to enzyme denaturation
