Elevated CO2 generally stimulates C3-type photosynthesis, but it is unclear how an increase in CO2 assimilation will interact with other factors that influence plant growth. In wetlands, the response of plants to elevated CO2 will interact with soil saturation, particularly in forested wetlands where soil saturation is a strong regulator of plant productivity. We performed a four-month experiment to determine whether elevated CO2 and flooding interact to influence the growth of a flood-tolerant… CONTINUE READING
