Zavalloni et al. (2012)

Total community biomass at the end of the growing season for a grassland community comprised of equal numbers of six perennial species - two grass species (Poa pratensis and Lolium perenne), two N-fixing dicots (Medicago lupulina and Lotus corniculatus) and two non-N-fixing dicots (Rumex acetosa and Plantago lanceolata) - grown in UV transparent climate-controlled chambers out-of-doors at Antwerp, Belgium, at ambient CO2 and temperature (T) and at elevated CO2 and T+3C
