The environmental factors are expected to be influenced by CO2 -induced environmental changes as a result of which, under climate situation, stresses on tree growth may change significantly over time. Other differences in response may arise because of the differences between the temperate and tropical ecosystems and the amount of woody tissue contained by the individuals. This may be greatly influenced by temperature. Biomass growth is the resultant of respiration and photosynthesis, and both will increase with the increase of temperature.
Plant biomass growth depends on the resultant of photosynthesis and respiration. The fixation of CO2 depends on the photosynthesis of green plants. Photosynthesis itself depends on many other factors, which may need to be considered to identify the effects of increased CO2 on the photosynthetic process. For example, phosphate is used in the reaction of CO2 fixation. A portion of this phosphate is supplied from chloroplasts. Sharkey and Vandeveer (1989) reported that phosphate within the chloroplast stoma is a substrate in ATP synthesis, and this regulates starch synthesis; and in the cytoplasm, inorganic phosphate is required for sucrose synthesis.
The detailed effect of trace elements on the greenhouse effect is still not clear. So, it is not possible on this basis to predict the nature and extent of greenhouse effect. Tuker (1990), however, suggested that the General Circulation Model (GCM) is a good point to start to analyze the regional impact of trace gases. Fossil fuels are said to be the major source of greenhouse gases. The world generates 62 % of its electricity from fossil fuels, mainly in the form of coal. This represents 27 % of the total carbon emissions from fossil fuels (Reid 1990).
