Effect of elevated CO2 and soil fertilization on whole-plant growth and water use in seedlings of a tropical pioneer tree, Ficus insipida Willd

Effect of elevated CO2 and soil fertilization on whole-plant growth and water use in seedlings of a tropical pioneer tree, Ficus insipida Willd

Flora Jena 196(6): 458-464

Seedlings of the tropical pioneer tree species Ficus insipida were cultivated at present-ambient and elevated (approximately twice-ambient) CO2 concentrations in open-top chambers located in a forest clearing near Panama City, Republic of Panama. To examine potential chamber-specific effects on growth and transpiration, plants were also studied outside chambers at ambient CO2 levels.
