Influences of Elevated Levels of CO2 on Plants

  • Madhoolika Agrawal


Humans have been exploiting the natural resources from the dawn of civilization, but the exploitation has accelerated at a very high rate since the Industrial Revolution. Atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere are utilized as resource as well as medium for discharge of waste products, which results in physicochemical changes in the quality of air, water, and soil that have harmful biological consequences. The chemical composition of the atmosphere is being modified by the injection of gases, particulates, and volatile substances that may upset the normal functioning of environment at varying degrees and run the risk of inducing irreversible ecological changes.
