Temperature is prominent among the major tcological variables that deterÂ mine the natural distribution of plants. Habitats occupied by higher plants show dramatic differences in the prevailing temperature during the period of active growth, ranging from near freezing in certain arctic and alpine environments to over 50Â°C in the hottest deserts. Moreover, in many habiÂ tats the same plant individual is subjected to a very wide seasonal variation in temperature regime and even diurnal temperature fluctuation can be considerable. Like almost all other growth processe:., photosynthesis is strongly affected by temperature. In most plants, chllnges in photosynthetic rate in response to temperature are reversible over a considerable range (commonly 10Â° to 35Â°C), but exposure to temperatures l:>elow or above this range may perature dependence of the process in the mnge over which the functional cause irreversible injury to the photosynthetic system. Thus, in addition to the effect of temperature on photosynthesis arising from the intrinsic temÂ integrity of the photosynthetic apparatus remains intact, extreme temperaÂ tures can drastically inhibit photosynthesis by disrupting the integrity of the system. differences in their photosynthetic responsï¿½: to temperature, and especially in their ability to maintain functional integrity at low and high temperature
