How much CO2 is absorbed by plants during the winter?

    This depends on the kind of plant. Deciduous plants in temperate and polar regions lose all of their leaves for the winter. So for them, no photosynthesis occurs, as so no CO2 is absorbed, until new leaves grow. Other deciduous plants and evergreens can absorb CO2 all year round. Plants that don’t have leaves, such as green algae, will generally continue photosynthesizing in winter as well. However, the rate of carbon dioxide intake will be lower in winter due to lower amount of sunlight available (because of shorter days and lower position of the sun in the sky) and lower temperature.
