photosynthesis

tonyamcdavis asks:

does plants still photosynthesize in the absence of light?

if so how do the plant manage not to die?

will this mechanism keep the plant alive forever?

what alternative sources of light (enery) does the plant use in this situation?

etutor answers:
Plants cannot photosynthesise in the absence of light - and they cannot use alternate energy sources. Without light, they will survive for a while on stored food reserves and then die.
