Testing carbon dioxide levels

Testing carbon dioxide levels

Inside these chambers are small trees that are being exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide. The experiment is testing the long-term effects of carbon dioxide on the growth of radiata pine and red beech. It is part of research into the impact of global climate change on ecosystems, which is being carried out near Christchurch by a group that includes researchers from local and international universities, and Crown research institutes.
