Leaf surfaces in shade receive lesser sunshine, so they experience a lesser amount of photosynthesis than plants or leaves in direct sunlight. Leaf pigments present in shady areas increase photosynthesis. As the chlorophyll content increases, the leaf absorbs more light, leading to a greater amount of photosynthesis, which makes the leaves greener when in shade than when in sunlight.Answered by Abhisek | 11 months ago
Figure shows the effect of light on the rate of photosynthesis. Based on the graph, answer the following questions:
(a) At which point/s (A, B or C) in the curve is light a limiting factor?
(b) What could be the limiting factor/s in region A?
(c) What do C and D represent on the curve?
