Carbon dioxide is a major greenhouse gas that causes global warming and directly impacts every aspect of plant life and indirectly impacts animal and human life. Ecological Responses and Adaptations of Crops to Rising Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide comprehensively analyzes the ecological responses of crops to increasing carbon dioxide and rising air temperatures, as well as the productional significance of these changes. Respected authorities thoroughly discuss the research detailing the complete range of issues from plant growth under increased carbon dioxide levels to the evolving ecophysiological responses within various crops. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first comprehensive book on the effects of increasing carbon dioxide on production ecophysiology of crops. Extensive references present opportunities for further research while detailed tables and graphs clearly illustrate data.
