  • In November 1991, a workshop entitled "CO2 and Biosphere" was held in Wageningen, The Netherlands. Thirty-two pages from that workshop are compiled in the journal Vegetation, 104/105, (January 1993). This is an excellent source of recent research information on how plants respond to changes in CO2.
