Farmers can use their knowledge of these limiting factors to increase crop growth in greenhouses. They may use artificial light so that photosynthesis can continue beyond daylight hours, or in a higher-than-normal light intensity. The use of paraffin lamps inside a greenhouse increases the rate of photosynthesis because the burning paraffin produces carbon dioxide, and heat too.
Without enough light, a plant cannot photosynthesise very quickly, even if there is plenty of water and carbon dioxide. Increasing the light intensity will boost the speed of photosynthesis.
GREENHOUSE EFFECT - PowerPoint PPT Presentation
As plants ‘breathe’ and ‘perspire’ they helpcool the atmosphere. Plants consume carbon dioxide—a significant greenhouse gas—in the process of photosynthesis. The reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has an indirect cooling effect. Plants also cool the atmosphere because they release water vapor when they get hot, a process similar to sweating. The diagram at left shows the microscopic structure of a leaf, and the processes of photosynthesis and transpiration. (Illustration courtesy P.J. Sellers et al.)
Photosynthesis, Trees, and the Greenhouse Effect - SAS
This process is also affected by the temperature surrounding the plant (the species of plant we experimented with, pond weed, photosynthesised best at around 20 degrees centigrade.) Light, temperature & CO2 are known as limiting factors, and each is as important as the next in photosynthes...

Forest management practices
Growing trees sequester large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. The carbon is used to build the plant and the oxygen is released back into the atmosphere. An increase in biomass from the growth of forests (both above ground and below ground) provides a carbon sink. As long as the wood does not decompose or is not burned or otherwise destroyed, the carbon is maintained in the wood and the wood continues to be a carbon sink. Trees harvested for building materials maintain the carbon in the new structure (houses, etc.) for decades. Wood disposed of in a solid waste disposal site provides an almost permanent carbon sink. The growth of new trees planted on harvested areas sequesters additional carbon.
What is the effect of global warming on photosynthesis?
The occurrence of photosynthesis is very important to us as humans, because it provides us with the oxygen we need to breathe and plants are at the bottom of every food-chain and so without them, I would collapse....
What is the effect of global warming on photosynthesis
Light is a very important factor in the rate of photosynthesis, in my project I am going to test that plants do need light in order to photosynthesise.
CO2 and decreasing the greenhouse effect
It will be very interesting to see how light will influence the rate of photosynthesis in plants and what will happen if they do not get the required light in order to produce starch .
