YES or NO?
YES or NO?
I'm assuming that you don't want an explanation, just a definite answer.
yes, because they also take apart the sugar they make for enegry like animals do.
explaination would be good, yesterday on the chatbox, SK said no, so i wanted everybody's opinion.
If i remember correctly it's called the respiration process and it takes place especialy during the night time.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plant respiration is the oxidation of certain substrates by enzymes, leading to a release of carbon dioxide. It can be loosely thought of as the opposite of photosynthesis, though the net release of carbon dioxide in respiration is less than carbon uptake in photosynthesis. Sources of glucose for respiration for plants are starch or directly from photosynthesis.
Respiration is an essential life process in plants. It is necessary for the synthesis of essential metabolites including carbohydrates, amino acids and fatty acids, as well as for the transport of minerals and other solutes between cells. It consumes between 25 and 75% of all the carbohydrates produced in photosynthesis at ordinary growth rates.

Almost word for word what I was going to write.... until I saw your post.If i remember correctly it's called the respiration process and it takes place especialy during the night time.
Ecologically speaking, a plant releases as much CO2 as O2 over the long haul, unless some of its organic matter ends up in rock. If the long haul is even longer, even that can be released.
