Carbon-Nitrogen Cycle Models of Forest Responses to Elevated CO2

July 2014
CO2 Science;7/30/2014, Vol. 17 Issue 31, p6
The article discusses a study on carbon-nitrogen cycle models of forest responses to elevated carbon dioxide levels. It references several studies including "Re-Assessment of Plant Carbon Dynamics at the Duke Free-air CO2 Enrichment Site: Interactions of Atmospheric CO2 with Nitrogen and Water Availability Over Stand Development" published in an issue of "New Phytologist" and "CO2 Enhancement of Forest Productivity Constrained by Limited Nitrogen Availability."
