A new insight into global photosynthesis, the chemical process governing how ocean and landplants absorb and release carbon dioxide, has been revealed in research that will assist scientists to more accurately assess future climate change.
In a paper published today in Nature, a team of US, Dutch and Australian scientists have estimated that the global rate of photosynthesis, the chemical process governing the way ocean and land plants absorb and release CO2, occurs 25% faster than previously thought.

Lawrie brings up a great point, increased levels of CO2 may be the result of more active plant growth. I would love to see if there’s a follow up to this research.

Or is a case of the more CO2 in the atmosphere the more active the plants and the faster they grow? A natural way of feeding an increasing population.
