Photo opp: reforestation, CO2 fertilization and global temperatures?

Well-crafted afforestation and reforestation projects may be able to absorb atmospheric CO2 25% more rapidly than in the past, by aligning species and site selection with the world’s changing climate and plant bio-chemistry.

Less well optimized projects may be leaving money on the table, especially if the drawbacks of warming climates outweigh the benefits or CO2 fertilization. This note and data-file outlines the science and its implications, which we will be taking into account at our own reforestation project (link below).

The purpose of this note and data-file is to outline the biochemistry of CO2 fertilization, temperatures and photo-respiration, tabulate technical  papers that have measured these issues, and compile other technical data for assessing this photosynthesis-related opportunity.
