The a~ in the concentration of CO2 in the air since the start of industrialization, and the global warming associated by this greenhouse gas, has stimulated careful search into the response of plants to elevated levels of CO2. Much of this toil has been carried out in controlled environments that procure limited information about long-term effects on vegetation. In contrast, CO2-emitting mineral springs provide a unique opportunity to contemplate vegetation which has endured over numerous company generations at naturally elevated levels of CO2. This book presents findings from a range of sites, confirming the possible of these natural laboratories in the examination of this important aspect of meteorological character change.
