The evidence includes the facts that [ l )different species extended at different rates, suggesting that properties of the plants and their hspersers, rather than temperature change, were controlling the pace; and (2)study of present-day plants does not suggest an ability to migrate faster than they did in the past. This section on dispersal rates has been all about plants. We have no similar data on past rates of dispersal for any animal groups.

Problem: requires large supply of CO,, as well as sophisticatedcontrol of its supply rate. Further information: Ceulemans & Mousseau ( 1994),McLeod &Long (1999). Mousseau 1994); see also note 3 of the table. Species with the C4 photosynthetic mechanism have a different initial CO, capture step, which makes them more efficient at capturing it from low concentrations. They might therefore be expected to benefit less than C3 species from increased CO,. Although there is some tendency towards this, there is a wide range of responses in both groups and much overlap between them (Poorter 1993).
