- ... The photosynthetic response of Larrea tridentata Cav., an evergreen Mojave Desert shrub, to elevated atmospheric CO₂ and drought was examined to assist in the understanding of how plants from water-limited ecosystems will respond to rising CO₂. We hypothesized that photosynthetic down-regulation would disappear during periods of water limitation, and would, therefore, likely be a seasonally transi ...
