Subject Index Summary
Growth Response to CO2 with Other Variables (Water Stress: Grassland Species): An analysis of the post-1994 peer-reviewed scientific literature pertaining to the responses of several grassland species to atmospheric CO2 enrichment, while concurrently experiencing various degrees of water stress, demonstrates that the historic and still-ongoing rise in the atmosphere's CO2 concentration will likely lead to substantial increases in the photosynthetic rates and biomass production of various grassland plants, even in the face of stressful environmental conditions imposed by less-than-optimum soil moisture availability.
