Effect of doubling of atmospheric CO2 on dark respiration of the aerial parts of young chestnut (Castanea sativa) trees

Comptes Rendus de l' Academie des Sciences Series 3, Sciences de la Vie 312(9): 477-481

Effect of doubling of atmospheric CO2 on dark respiration of the aerial parts of young chestnut (Castanea sativa) trees

Two-year-old chestnut seedlings were grown in ventilated chambers for a full growing season at ambient (350 p.p.m.) or double (700 p.p.m.) CO2 concentrations. Compared with control (ambient) plants, enriched plants exhibited a net decrease in dark respiration rate during the first half of the growing season.
