Description

This volume is an essential addition to the libraries of researchers interested in the "greenhouse effect" and problems arising from increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. The work covers both the effects on plants and photosynthetic productivity and, alternatively, the role of plants in regulating the chemical balance of the atmosphere. Contributors evaluate recent research and review many aspects of photosynthetic carbon metabolism explored over the past 40 years. Topics include the geochemistry of the environment, photorespiration and respiration, concentrating processes, and other key issues. The book provides critical background material for researchers in a number of fields, including geochemistry, evolution and paleobotany, plant physiology and biochemistry, environmental science, and ecology.show more
