Is anyone else worried that telling plants to suddenly stop absorbing as much C02 might just be a bad thing?"Researchers in Finland and the United States say they have discovered a gene that controls the amount of carbon dioxide a plant absorbs. It also controls the amount of water vapour it releases into the atmosphere. This information could be important for food production and in regulating climate change. In extremely dry weather, a plant can lose 95% of its water in this way.
