Predicting the impacts of future high atmospheric CO2 concentration, [CO2], on the physiology and growth of boreal forests is complicated by interactions of CO2 with other environmental conditions. Two-factor CO2 x environment interactions on boreal tree species have been reported. This research was designed to determine how photosynthetic and growth responses of white birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.) to elevated [CO2] are influenced by multifactor interactions of other environmental factors.
