Future climate change scenarios include CO2-induced temperature increases. Plants acclimate to changes in temperature and CO2, and these physiological responses will affect global carbon fluxes. I investigate the responses of day and night respiration (Rday, Rnight) and light-saturated photosynthesis in a dominant boreal species, Norway spruce (Picea abies), to elevated CO2 and temperatures. The experiment is conducted at Biotron facility-biomes (naturally lighted units with automatically controlled temperature and CO2).
