C3 plants

C3 plants, are plants, generally from temerate areas, that differ from C4 plants and CAM plants in that they do not compensate for photorespiration. C3 plants tend to thrive in areas where light intensity is moderate, temperatures are moderate, carbon dioxide concentrations are around 200 ppm or higher, and ground water is plentiful.
