As we know, plants do fotosistesis to form a food substance or energy that plants need it. In photosynthesis the plants absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) and water later in the fox into glucose and oxygen with the help of sunlight. All this process takes place in chlorophyll. The ability of plants as carbon dioxide absorbent will vary.
Many factors influence the absorption of carbon dioxide. Among them is determined by the quality of chlorophyll. Quality is determined by the extent of chlorophyll magnesium, which became the core of chlorophyll. The greater the level of magnesium, the leaves will be dark green.
Absorption of carbon dioxide a tree is also determined by the total leaf area, leaf age and plant growth phase. In addition, trees are flowering and fruiting have a higher photosynthetic capacity to be able as a better absorber of carbon dioxide. Another factor that will determine the absorption of carbon dioxide is the temperature, and sunlight, availability of water.
Champion Trees Korbondioksida Trembesi absorbers. Is Endes N. Dahlan, a lecturer at the Faculty of Forestry, Bogor Agricultural University who conducted the study absorption of carbon dioxide in various types of trees. Research conducted in 2007-2008 provide results that tamarind (Samanea saman) proved most absorbing carbon dioxide. Within a year, tamarind 28488.39 kg can absorb carbon dioxide.

Apart from a tamarind tree, obtained also different types of plants that have a high ability as a plant absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2). The trees include cassia, ylang, next to me, banyan, Krey umbrella, matoa, mahogany, and various other plant species.
List of Tree Carbon dioxide absorbers. Here is a list of plants that have a high absorption of carbon dioxide based on research Endes N. Dahlan. (No, the tree name, Latin name, the absorptive capacity).

Plants is carbon dioxide absorbent hero based on research conducted by Endes N. Dahlan is published early 2008. Not rule out the possibility there are other trees that have a carbon dioxide absorption capacity is higher.
However, efforts were made Endes N. Dahlan is worth our acungi thumb that allows us to more precisely choose plants that have extra capacity for absorbing carbon dioxide in an effort to reduce air pollution and reduce the impact of global warming.
