Most types of photosynthesis (C3 & C4) occur only during the day, however plants that use CAM photosynthesis open their stomata during the night to take in the gases essential for photosynthesis withoug losing the water in the cells. They then use the CO2 to produce glucose throughout the day.

Does photosythesis occur at night?

Photosynthesis requires energy from light. If there is no light there can be no photosynthesis. Photosynthesis doesn't occur in the dark. You could use electric lights to simulate daylight and make plants photosynthesise during the night time.

Does photosynthesis takeplace at night in any one of the plants?

No, for photosynthesis to occur there has to be light for the plant to use.

When does the process of cellular respiration occur?

At night, when photosynthesis no longer occurs.

Do respiration and photosynthesis occur at the same time?

Yes . These all occurs at same time . But in night photosynthesis does't occurs.

Does photosynthesis occur at night?

Light is essential for photosynthesis to occur because it is the source of energy, so it doesnt occur during the night. However, CAM plants have the capability to run the light reactions during the day (when there is light) and the Calvin cycle at night. They do this by only opening their stomata at night and allowing the gas exchange then. This is done as a way to reduce the effects of transpiration in dry climates.

Could photosynthesis occur in a plant outside at night?

No. Unless there was another light source besides the sun;photosynthesis is a process involving light.

Does photosynthesis and cellular respiration occur during the night?

Respiration is taken place all day. Dark reaction of photosynthesis takes place at night
