Elevated CO2 and plant-growth: cellular mechanisms and responses of whole plants.

Much research has focused on the photosynthetic responses of plants to elevated CO2, with less attention given to the post-photosynthetic events which may lead to changes in the growth of tissues, organs and whole plants. The aim of this review is to identify how plant growth is altered in elevated CO2 and to determine which growth processes or cellular mechanisms are sensitive to carbon supply. For leaves, both the expansion of individual leaves and the initiation of leaf primordia are stimulated in elevated CO2. When lamina growth is promoted, this is usually associated with increased leaf cell expansion rather than increased leaf cell production
