Photosynthesis (Pn) Production of sugars within green tissues in the presence of light Process responsible for all fossil fuels used today Responsible for most if not all O 2 in the atmosphere Amount of sugar produced world-wide via Pn is equivalent to 7.1 tons per person on earth

Photosynthesis Equation nCO 2 + 2nH 2 O (CH 2 O)n + nO 2 + nH 2 Chlorophyll Light

Internal Regulation of Photosynthesis Stomatal conductance Stomatal conductance is a measure of the pore size. The loss of H 2 O vapor through the stomata is called - Transpiration

Stomatal conductance (g s ) Relationship of g s to light level. Full sunlight is ~ 2,000 μmol m -2 s -1 (photons) Note – x axis max is only 1500 Internal Regulation of Photosynthesis

Regulation of Photosynthesis: Environmental factors Light ( Solar radiation ) Single most important environmental factor. Single leaf Pn not saturated until 2/3 of full sunlight. Whole vine Pn is probably not saturated at all during the day (due to mutual shading of the leaves).
Background image of page 18
Light Light compensation point (no net uptake of CO 2 ) is ~ 15 μmol m -2 s -1 . Single leaf light saturation of Pn is ~ 2/3 of full sunlight. Regulation of Photosynthesis:
