The rise in the concentration of CO[2 in the atmosphere since the start of industrialisation, and the associated global warming, has stimulated research into the response of plants to elevated levels of CO[2. Co2-emitting mineral springs provide a unique opportunity to consider vegetation which has endured over many generations at naturally elevated levels of CO2.

Overview

The rise in the concentration of CO[2 in the atmosphere since the start of industrialisation, and the associated global warming, has stimulated research into the response of plants to elevated levels of CO[2. Co2-emitting mineral springs provide a unique opportunity to consider vegetation which has endured over many generations at naturally elevated levels of CO2. This volume presents findings from a range of sites, which confirm the potential of these natural laboratories in the investigation of this important aspect of climate change.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Plant Responses is an excellent addition to the literature on the long-term impacts of elevated carbon dioxide on natural ecosystems...The set of contributors is top-notch, and the assemblage of topics covered is excellent...[T]his is a well-conceived and written book and an excellent resource work." Choice

"The rise in carbon dioxide levels resulting from fossil fuel consumption and deforestation concerns us all. There are social and economic factors to be considered as well as scientific. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to gain perspective into the scientific aspects of this debate." Natural Areas Journal
