Will someone check my answers, please? I have put in bold what I think the right answer is.


2. (7 points) If you turned a bifacial leaf upside down with respect to incoming full sunlight, predict what would happen to:


a. Transpiration rate (decrease, increase, stay the same)


b. Photosynthesis (decrease, increase, stay the same)


c. Water use efficiency (decrease, increase, stay the same)


d. The overall diffusive conductance to CO2 (gl-CO2) (decrease, increase, stay the same)


e. The overall diffusive conductance to H2O (gl-H2O) (decrease, increase, stay the same)


f. ∆NCO2 (decrease, increase, stay the same)


g. Absorption of incoming light by chloroplasts (decrease, increase, stay the same)

  • Could you explain why transpiration increases, please?

  • Becuase most of the stomata are arranged at the lower surface of leaf, if we turned a bifacial leaf upside down with respect to incoming full sunlight, light directly reaches to stomata which allows the increase in evaporation of more water content which is known as increased transpiration.
