Abstract

An experimental, model longleaf pine community was constructed to examine the affects of increased CO2 on biomass and survival of 5 species. Crotalaria rotundifolia and Asclepias tuberosa were negatively affected by CO2 enrichment; mortality was elevated and biomass accumulation was reduced resulting in altered community structure.
