The Continuing Saga of the Duke Forest FACE Experiment: At the point where the 200-ppm CO2-enrichment of the air in the Duke Forest FACE study had been maintained for a full six years, was there any evidence that the large initial aerial fertilization effect of the extra CO2 had declined with the passage of time?

Subject Index Summaries
Dark Ages Cold Period (North America): Was there such a multi-century period of relative coolness in North America?  And what was it like in terms of relative moisture conditions?

Lignin: How is this recalcitrant component of plant tissues affected by the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content, and what is its primary implication?

Journal Reviews
Solar Activity and Indian Monsoon Rainfall: Is the latter phenomenon modulated by the former?

Millennial-Scale Oscillations of a Maritime Plateau Glacier of Western Norway: What do they reveal about the relative warmth of the Modern Warm Period, Medieval Warm Period and Roman Warm Period?

Seventeen Years of CO2 Enrichment of a Wetland Sedge Community: Have the benefits of atmospheric CO2 enrichment increased, decreased or stayed about the same over the length of this long-term study?

Species Range Responses to CO2-Induced Global Warming: Should we be worried about model predictions of imminent warming-induced extinctions?

The Photosynthetic Adjustment of Mosses Exposed to Life-Long Atmospheric CO2 Enrichment: How have various species of moss adjusted to living in highly-CO2-enriched air in the vicinity of CO2-emitting springs?
