Increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere restricts uptake of nitrogen [Registered]

Furthermore, we can see that this negative effect exists regardless of whether or not the plants’ growth increases, and even if fertiliser is added. This is unexpected and new,” says the lead researcher Johan Uddling.
