Disturbance is required for CO2-dependent promotion of woody plant growth in grasslands
The relative effects of disturbance (here defined as bare soil), competition for edaphic resources, thermal interference and elevated [CO 2] on growth of tree seedlings in grasslands were studied under field conditions. Snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. ex Spreng.) seedlings were grown in open-top chambers flushed with either ambient or elevated [CO 2] from March 2004 to January 2005 (autumn to summer). These seedlings were planted into three treatments (i.e. bare soil, soil covered with...[Show more]
