agricultural practices that result in lower emissions. Currently, crop lands represent approximately one-third of Europe's land area ( Smith et al., 2005 ). In this direction, Hutchinson et al. (2007) concluded that the CO 2 fixation potential of crop lands

Most studies on the physiological responses of plants to increasing CO 2 concentrations have focused on C 3 and C 4 photosynthetic pathway plants. It has been found that CO 2 enrichment enhances net CO 2 uptake and growth of C 3 plants by 30

). Excess excitation energy may cause damage to the photosynthetic apparatus when it exceeds the capacity of other dissipation mechanism. Ambient CO 2 concentration (CO 2 ) is a limiting factor to net CO 2 assimilation (A) in C 3 plants ( Lambers et al

The [CO 2 ] in greenhouse cultivation during daylight hours is often lower than the atmospheric level, possibly as low as 200 µmol·mol −1 when ventilation is limited ( Kläring et al., 2007 ; Sánchez-Guerrero et al., 2005 ). In such cases, CO 2

photosynthetic fixation of labeled CO 2 . Using a pulse-chase technique in which Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh was exposed to 14 CO 2 for 10 min, followed by exposure to natural CO 2 for another 10 min, Sun et al. (1999) measured carbon partitioning into
