Cyanobacteria responding well to warming in Roman Bath.

Thinking outside the box?

How well will plants – and plant-like organ­isms – func­tion with rising concentrations of levels of atmo­spheric CO2? And how will the increases in temperatures – asso­ci­ated with cli­mate change/global warm­ing – affect them? Given the import­ance of mar­ine phyto­plank­ton organ­isms to global pro­ductiv­ity, under­stand­ing how those phyto­plank­ters might be impacted by increased CO2 con­cen­tra­tions is of para­mount import­ance.
