Responses of Legume Versus Nonlegume Tropical Tree Seedlings to Elevated CO 2 Concentration

Cernusak, Lucas; Winter, Klaus; Martinez, Carlos; Correa, Edwin; Aranda , Jorge; Garcia, Milton; Jaramillo, Carlos; Turner, Benjamin L


We investigated responses of growth, leaf gas exchange Carbon-isotope discrimination, and whole-plant water-use efficiency (WP) to elevated CO2 concentration ([CO2]) in seedlings of five leguminous and five nonleguminous tropical tree species. Plants were grown at CO2 partial pressures of 40 and 70 Pa. As a group, legumes did not differ from nonlegumes in growth response to elevated CO2]. The mean ratio of final plant dry mass at elevated to ambient [CO2] (ME/MA) was 1.32 and 1.24 for legumes...[Show more]
