Increased CO2 in the atmosphere is responsible for global warming and rising sea levels.

Climate change, causing rising sea levels, which put wetlands at risk of excessive flooding.

A team of scientists conducted a study for two years (2006-2007), during which focused on the role of organic matter, the results showing that large amounts of CO2 improves plant productivity, especially the root as elevation increases soil CO 2 enhances growth capacity of wetlands to tolerate increasing relative sea level.

Half of the land receiving nitrogen fertilizer, stimulating growth of water pollution, which diminishes the positive effects of large amounts of CO 2 on the elevation wetlands.

Forests aspirin

Of NCAR scientists discovered that plants in a forest respond to stress by producing nuts in significant amounts to a form of aspirin.

Unlike humans, who are advised to take aspirin to decrease a temperature, plants and their ability to produce their own aspirin, leading to the formation of proteins that stimulate the biochemical defense system, says Thomas Karl, NCAR, which led study.
