In tropical rain forests, the canopy is thick and plants growing below receive filtered light. How are they able to carry out photosynthesis?
Light, as only 10% of full sunlight is sufficient in light saturation, is seldom a limiting factor in photosynthesis. Less light may slow the rate of photosynthesis in plants that grow under thick canopy in the woods, but photosynthesis cannot stop at daily times. Therefore, photosynthesis can take place. These plants.
