If, on a sunny summer day, you measure the temperature of bare soil and nearby soil covered with plants, it turns out that the bare soil is hotter. But if in these places the temperature of the soil is measured at night, then, on the contrary, the soil under the plants will have a higher temperature than bare. Explain why?

Plants trap a significant part of the sun’s rays, so the soil under them heats up less during the day than bare soil. At night, when the air temperature drops significantly, the plants protect the soil from intense radiation and it does not cool as much as naked.
