About this book

This book describes how carbon dioxide has affected all life on earth since the earliest times and explores the responses of plants, particularly food plants, to the ever-increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the air. It explains why the impact of elevated carbon dioxide on food production will not be the panacea that some have predicted.
