Description

Although the role of rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration [CO<inf>2</inf>] on plant growth and fecundity is widely acknowledged as important within the scientific community; less research is available regarding the impact of [CO<inf>2</inf>] on secondary plant compounds, even though such compounds can play a significant role in human health. At present, Artemisia annua, an annual plant species native to China, is widely recognized as the primary source of artemesinin used in...[Show more]
