Doubling of CO2 will cause global plant photosynthesis to increase by a third, study from CRESCENDO´s scientists conclude (Wenzel et al. 2016, Nature)

Doubling of CO2 will cause global plant photosynthesis to increase by a third, study from CRESCENDO´s scientists conclude Vegetation and soil are currently slowing down global warming by absorbing about a quarter of human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). This land carbon sink is believed to be in part due to increases in photosynthesis. This new […]
