As C(3) photosynthesis is not yet CO(2)-saturated, forests offer the possibility of enhanced growth and carbon (C) sequestration with rising atmospheric CO(2). However, at an ecosystem scale, increased photosynthetic rates are not always translated into faster tree growth, and in free air carbon enrichment (FACE) experiments with trees, the stimulation in above-ground growth often declines with time. So is tree growth C-limited? The evidence is reviewed here at three different scales. First, at… CONTINUE READING
