This study examined the effects of CO2 and light availability on sapling growth and foliar chemistry, and consequences for insect performance. Quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), paper birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.), and sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) were grown in controlled environment greenhouses under ambient or elevated CO2 (38.7 and 69.6 Pa), and low or high light availability (375 and 855 μmol m−2 s−1). Because CO2 and light are both required for carbon assimilation, the… CONTINUE READING
