Dark respiration measurement

Dark respiration

Dark respiration is the light-independent phase of photosynthesis, during which plants and other organisms use the chemical energy of ATP and NAD(P)H formed during light-dependent phase to convert carbon dioxide and into carbohydrates or sugars.

Dark respiration can be measured with the Oroboros O2k.
