A study on photosynthetic characteristics ofBetula platyphylla

Influences of temperature, humidity, and CO2 concentration on the photosynthesis and respiration of three-year-oldBetula platyphylla was investigated. Light compensation point, saturation point and CO2 compensation point were also determined. The results showed that the optimal temperature of photosynthesis and dark respiration was 24 °C and 30 °C, respectively, at ambient CO2. When relative humidity was 80%,Betula platyphylla could maintain strong photosynthesis. There was no significant correlation between respiration and relative humidity. The light compensation and saturation point was 25 μmol·m−2·s−1 and 1 375 μmol·m−2·s−1, respectively. The CO2 compensation point was 180 μL·L−1. The results showed thatBetula platyphylla still had potential to assimilate CO2 when CO2 concentration was above 2 400 μL·L−1.
