Back to the future plants tell us what will happen as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere continues to increase- A blog by Gail Taylor

A new analysis in Taylor Lab suggests that long- term, multi-generational response of plants to rising CO2  are similar to those found in single generation FACE experiments, with consequences for continued global greening and future higher rates of photosynthesis.

Time-traveling plants that could move forward and backwards across the decades would be extremely valuable in understanding how these photosynthesizing organisms are likely to respond to the altered conditions predicted as a consequence of anthropogenic climate change.
