Environmental effects on photosynthesis of C3 plants : scaling up from electron transport to the canopy (study case: Glycine max L. Merr)
Atmospheric CO₂ concentration is expected to rise from its current level of 354 ppm to 530 ppm by the year 2050 and 700 ppm by the year 2100 (Watson et al., 1990). This change in CO₂ concentration (and other infra-red absorbing gases) in the atmosphere are expected to produce a greenhouse warming of the global surface of 3 to 4 °C by 2100 (Bretherton et al., 1990). Predicting how plants will respond to these changes is very important in understanding the impacts of atmospheric change...[Show more]
