Abstract: The photosynthetic rates of Trentepohlia odorata growing on wall surfaces in Singapore changed throughout the day with a maximum in midmorning and decreasing thereafter during the day. Optimum temperature for photosynthesis was 25°C. Different levels of air humidity also affected photosynthetic rates with low relative humidity reducing the rates and efficiency of photosynthesis. T. odorata could maximize its rate of photosynthesis before photoinhibitory light levels were reached. Growth might be dependent on high levels of atmospheric relative humidity, which may serve as a source of water supply for the alga. -from Authors
