  • There is so far no indication of adaptations to UV-B radiation that are specific to plants of the Arctic [38] Variable atmospheric CO2 concentrationsIncreased atmospheric CO2 concentrations usually stimulate photosynthesis and growth if other factors are nonlimiting; an increased ratio of carbon to nitrogen in plant tissuesPhotosynthesis in Alaskan graminoids acclimated to high CO2 concentrations within six weeks, with no long-term gain [39] The dwarf willow (Salix herbacea) has been able to alter its carbon metabolism and morphology in relation to changing CO2 concentrations throughout the last 9,000 years [40] Species such as the moss Hylocomium splendens are already adapted to high CO2 concentrations; frequently experiencing 400 – 450 parts per million (ppm), and sometimes over 1100 ppm, to compensate for low light intensities under mountain birch woodland.
