Interaction between acid and alkaline impurities, coexisting naturally in ice, could lead to production of excess CO2 in Greenland ice samples, and to erroneously high CO2 values for climatic transitions.

Item #d94jun139

"Influence of Atmospheric CO2 on the Decline of C4 Plants During the Last Deglaciation," D.R. Cole (Chem. & Analyt. Sci. Div., Oak Ridge Natl. Lab., Oak Ridge TN 37831), H.C. Monger, Nature, 368(6471), 533-536, Apr. 7, 1994.

Presents palaeosol carbon isotope ratios that reveal a shift from C4 grasses to C3 shrubs about 7-9 kyr ago in the New Mexico desert, corresponding with an increase in atmospheric CO2 as recorded in Antarctic ice cores. Concludes that carbon isotope ratios of ancient soils can be a proxy for past CO2 changes.

Item #d94jun140

"High Hopes for C4 Plants," P.D. Moore (Div. Life Sci., King's Coll., Campden Hill Rd., London W8 7AH, UK), Nature, 367(6461), 322-323, Jan. 27, 1994. Comments on the following paper and its relevance to the CO2-sensitivity mechanisms of plants:

Item #d94jun141

[title unavailable], V.S. Rama Das (Palamur, India), S.K. Vats, Photosynthetica, 28, 91-97, 1993. C4 plants at high altitudes may be at an advantage under conditions of depleted CO2 (as in certain aquatic environments), because ambient levels of CO2 are lower.

Item #d94jun142

"Ecophysiological Responses of Plants to Global Environmental Change Since the Last Glacial Maximum," D.J. Beerling (Dept. Animal & Plant Sci., Univ. Sheffield, POB 601, Sheffield S10 2UQ, UK), F.I. Woodward, New Phytol., 125(3), 641-648, Nov. 1993.

Data for fossil leaves of Salix herbacea L. show that stomatal conductance is negatively correlated with increases in atmospheric CO2 for the last 16,500 years. This result is the first evidence of long-term response of stomatal conductance to increases in atmospheric CO2.

Item #d94jun143

"Elevated Atmospheric CO2 and Feedback Between Carbon and Nitrogen Cycles," D.R. Zak (Sch. Nat. Resour. & Environ., Univ. Michigan, Ann Arbor MI 48109), K.S. Pregitzer et al., Plant & Soil, 151, 105-117, Apr. 1993.

A study of bigtooth aspen seedlings showed that doubled CO2 caused faster growth, but also increased the carbon level in the soil, which in turn caused an increase in the microbial biomass of the soil and an increase in available nitrogen.
