Possible Genetic Effects of Continually Increasing Atmospheric CO2
This book is devoted to the analysis of the effects of atmospheric toxicity on plants. Specifically, the book considers the response of individual plants to toxic air pollutants and the consequences of differential intraspecific survival and reproduction on the genetic structure of plant populations. The goal is to consider the long-term effects of air pollution particularly as they may influence the ecological genetics of plant species in both intensively managed and natural ecosystems (Pitelka 1988).
