A resource ratio model of the effects of changes in CO2 on woody plant invasion

Abstract

It is expected that elevated CO2 levels may have an important positive effect on the dominance of woody plants over grasses in savannas and grasslands. I propose that these changes in the relative abundance of trees and shrubs over grasses may be explained by Tilman’s resource ratio models. This change will occur because C3 trees will have higher net… (More)
