Abstract

The hypothesis is tested that global increases of CO2-concentration reduce stomatal density. Historical and recent data for leaves of over 200 plant species are compared. Statistically significant differences in stomatal density occur neither in lowland, nor in alpine plants over the 7 to 12 decades spanning of this comparison.
