I was just wondering how a plant is able to overcome their problems of reduced exposure of photosynthetic area to sunlight and allow sufficient carbon dioxide for photosynthesis into the plant when they also have to conserve their water. (regarding Australian conditions)

Its a chemical process - the limiting factor is the part that runs out first. So the problem is not overcome, the process just isn't competed.

Welcome!

You might find it useful to do a Google search on the differences between C3, C4 and CAM photosynthesis.
