Subject Index Summary
Growth Response to CO2 with Other Variables (Ozone: Aspen Trees): Trees grown in CO2-enriched air nearly always exhibit increased rates of photosynthesis and biomass production, while trees grown in ozone (O3)-enriched air tend to experience the opposite effects. So what happens when both of these trace constituents of the atmosphere increase together? This question is explored below with respect to the most widely distributed tree species of North America: quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.).
