Do you know about these secret life of plants?
If we recall our high school biology all we know about photosynthesis, but not all of us are familiar with process of plant respiration.
According to a research paper it has been determined how much carbon dioxide plants release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Respiration is similar to how our mitochondria use a substrate that has a high energy.
For energy, plants burn the sugar made during photosynthesis.
And burning those sugar for energy produces carbon dioxide.
Respiration process is very complex so the team of researchers focused their study on one important molecule
