Abstract
According to Valle et al. (1985), the leaf temperature of soybeans was approximately 1.5℃ higher at elevated CO 2 concentrations, and leaf resistance was more profound at elevated CO 2 concentrations than under ambient CO 2 conditions. As a consequence, the transpiration rate of soybeans grown under ambient or elevated CO 2 concentrations was not significantly affected by alterations in CO 2 levels. Because the increases in leaf resistance caused by high CO 2 were partially offset by increases in the leaf-to-air vapor pressure gradient induced by the increased transpiration rate owing to increased leaf temperature (Polley et al. 2008). In other words, higher temperatures can increase the transpiration rate by altering the vapor pressure deficit at the leaf surface. From the above discussion, the transpiration rates of P. insularis and P. americana would be more profoundly affected by increased temperature than by elevated CO 2 concentrations.

INTRODUCTION
Is has been theorized that, because atmospheric CO 2 concentration and air temperature appear to be linked, and elevations are occurring in both, the global environment should also be experiencing a concomitant change (Morison and Lawlor 1999).
Since the late 1950s, global atmospheric CO 2 concentration has increased by an average of 1.9 ppm per year (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007). Within this century, atmospheric CO 2 concentration is expected to exceed 50 ppm (Hofmann et al. 2009), in turn generating a global mean surface temperature warming of 1.9-4.4℃ (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate C5hange 2007). However, according to Lunt et al. (2010), the earth's temperature might be as much as 30- 50% more sensitive to atmospheric CO 2 concentration than previously thought.
In Korea, since the late 1990s, atmospheric CO 2 concentrations rose from 370.7 ppm to 391.4 ppm in 2008 (Korea Meteorological Administration 2008). According to the observational data from six observation stations (in Seoul, Incheon, Gangneung, Daegu, Mokpo, and Busan) between 1912 and 2009, the annual mean temperature has risen by 1.7℃ in that time (Korea Meteorological Administration 2009).
First, most of the plants increase the photosynthetic rate under elevated CO 2 and temperature (He et al. 2005, Geissler et al. 2009). Additionally, a common response of plants to elevated CO 2 concentration is reduced stomatal conductance (Leakey et al. 2009a). This frequently results in a reduced transpiration rate, coupled to a resultant increase in the plant's water use efficiency (Radoglou et al. 1992, Kanemoto et al. 2009).
Second, elevated CO 2 and temperature conditions tend to alter the foliar chemistry of plants. Generally speaking, the chlorophyll contents of leaves grown under elevated CO 2 concentrations are reduced (Wullschleger et al. 1992, Hamid et al. 2009). Additionally, leaf nitrogen contents are reduced, but carbon contents are increased under such conditions (Gifford et al. 2000). Consequently, the change in the relative proportion of carbon to nitrogen is increased substantially under elevated CO 2 and temperature conditions (Rao et al. 2009).
These physiological responses of plants to elevated CO 2 and temperature are known to vary due to interspecific differences or varying experimental conditions, as well as for several other reasons (Enoch and Honour 1993, Hamilton et al. 2008). In foreign countries, many researchers have measured plants' physiological responses to global warming using a variety of techniques, methods and plant materials, as well as interactions among different environmental factors. While in Korea, the influence of elevated CO 2 or temperature on physiological responses of crops to enhance crop productivity has been studied (Lee and Choi 2001, Lee et al. 2009), but the effect of global warming on physiological responses of native plants have never been studied so far.
Native plants are generally less tolerant to environmental stresses and have lower phenotypic plasticity in acclimating to a broader range of environmental conditions than invasive species (Sakai et al. 2001, Baruch and Jackson 2005). For the reasons mentioned above, native species may be more negatively affected than invasive species under the global warming. According to Song et al. (2009), the photosynthesis and biomass production of native species under elevated CO 2 were lower than their invasive competitors.
In order to compare the physiological responses of native and invasive plants to elevated CO 2 and temperature, we measured the photosynthetic parameters, chlorophyll contents, nitrogen contents, carbon contents and C/N ratios of Phytolacca insularis (native species) and Phytolacca americana (invasive species) under control (ambient CO 2 -ambient temperature, AC-AT) and treatment (elevated CO 2 -elevated temperature, EC-ET) in this study.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
- Study species
A native species restrictively found in Ulleung-do of Korea, P. insularis , has been designated as a rare and endangered plant by the Korea Forest Service (Lee 2008). P. americana is a herbaceous perennial plant native to the American Northeast, which commonly grows to a height of 1 to 1.5 m (Lee 2006). P. americana is distributed widely throughout the country, occurring in diverse habitats including fields, roadsides, forest edges, etc. In particular, it is distributed broadly in environmentally polluted areas (Park et al. 1999). One of the principal morphological characteristics of P. americana is drooping racemes. By way of comparison, P. insularis features permanently erect racemes (Chae et al. 2007).
- Experimental design and growth condition
This study was conducted in and out of a glass greenhouse. The control was maintained at ambient CO 2 concentration and temperature (AC-AT) of the immediately surrounding air, which averaged approximately 370-380 ppm on a 24-hour basis. In order to ensure the same light intensity in the treatment, the controls were covered by the glass roof as well.
This study was conducted in and out of a glass greenhouse. The control was maintained at ambient CO 2 concentration and temperature (AC-AT) of the immediately surrounding air, which averaged approximately 370-380 ppm on a 24-hour basis. In order to ensure the same light intensity in the treatment, the controls were covered by the glass roof as well.
In this fashion, the elevated CO 2 concentration was maintained at approximately twice that of the ambient (750-800 ppm). An LCi Ultra Compact Photosynthesis System (Lci Pro; ADC Bioscientific, Hoddesdon, UK) was used to evaluate the stability of the CO 2 concentration in the treatment. The CO 2 concentration was controlled from the planting throughout the experiment.
The mean temperature in the treatment was about 3℃ higher than the control (Fig. 1) . The air temperature was measured using an alcohol thermometer at the same height in the control and treatment during the study period.

- Cultivation
In November 2007, the matured seeds of two species were collected from several individuals of a population in a glass greenhouse, respectively. In May 2008, the seeds of two species were sown in pots (51 cm × 15.3 cm × 12 cm) filled with equal proportions of sand, and we fertilized 0.5% of the sand weight. We subsequently applied organic fertilizer, which contains an ammonium nitrogen content of below 170 mg/L and nitrate nitrogen at a concentration of 150-330 mg/L. The plants were watered twice or three times per week to prevent them from suffering from water stress.
In June 2008, the plants were grown in the glass greenhouse until reaching the 2 to 3-leaf growth stage and were then transplanted in 2-seedlings into pots (22.5 cm × 27 cm) containing the sand.
For each species, three replicate pots were randomly assigned to the control and treatment respectively.
- Photosynthetic measurements
The photosynthetic characteristics of the two species were measured at the vegetative stage, which was developmentally determined for the control and treatment using an LCi Ultra Compact Photosynthesis System (Lci Pro) from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in June, 2009.
Leaf sections for measurements were selected in the upper parts of fully expanded leaves per an individual plant. The measured leaves from the controls were initially exposed to an air CO 2/ concentration of 370-380 ppm and those from the treatment to a CO 2 concentration of 750-800 ppm.
Twenty four hours before measuring photosynthesis, water was supplied to the level of the moisture capacity (700 mL) of a pot, in order to reduce the difference in relative humidity between the control and treatment. The light source utilized for the natural light and photosynthetic active radiation was 400-600 μmol m -2 s -1 in our measurements. Before the air entered the leaf chamber, the LCi Ultra Compact Photosynthesis System removed water vapor in the air through columns of soda lime.
All measurements were replicated more than 30 times. The items measured included the photosynthetic rate (μmol m -2 s -1 ), stomatal conductance (mol m -2 s -1 ), transpiration rate (mmol m -2 s -1 ) and water use efficiency (μmol CO 2 /mmol H 2 O).

RESULTS
- Photosynthetic characteristics
The photosynthesis rate (Fig. 2a) , transpiration rate (Fig. 2c) and water use efficiency (Fig. 2d) of the two plant species were higher under the treatment than under the control. Among the photosynthetic characteristics, photosynthesis rate and water use efficiency were found to be particularly related to plant growth. The photosynthesis rate of P. insularis and P. americana increased by approximately 2.5- and 4.3-fold, respectively, in the treatment. The water use efficiency of P. insularis increased from 0.6 to 1.2 and that of P. americana increased from 0.5 to 1.9 as the result of elevated CO 2 and temperature.
At treatment, the stomatal conductance (Fig. 2b) of P. insularis was reduced by 38 percent as compared with the controls, but that of P. americana was not significantly affected by elevated CO 2 and temperature.
- Chlorophyll content
The results of chlorophyll content of two plant species on elevated CO 2 and temperature are shown in Fig. 3 . Chlorophyll content of two species significantly decreased by elevated CO 2 and temperature. P. insularis and P. americana decreased by 72.5% and 20% respectively at the treatment.

When we compared the two plant species grown under control and treatment conditions, the physiological responses of the two plant species grown under control and treatment conditions were different (Fig. 4) .
In general, elevated CO 2 and temperature enhance the photosynthetic rates of leaves (Lemon 1983, Lee and Choi 2001, Ghannoum et al. 2010) and water use efficiency (Nijs et al. 1989), and reduce the stomatal conductance and transpiration rates of the plants (Morison 1987, Ainsworth and Rogers 2007).
The results of our measurements demonstrated that the photosynthetic rates of P. insularis and P. americana were higher in the treatment than in the control. According to the results reported by Ryle et al. (1992), the photosynthetic rate of perennial ryegrass ( Lolium perenne ) grown for 49 days at a CO 2 concentration of 680 ppm was increased by 35-46%. During the growth of L. perenne over 10 years under elevated CO 2 conditions, the photosynthetic rate of L. perenne was stimulated by 36% (Ainsworth et al. 2003). Garbutt et al. (1990) determined that three C 3 plants and two C 4 plants were significantly increased in photosynthetic capacity at 700 ppm CO 2 , relative to 350 ppm CO 2 . The net photosynthetic rates of pigweed ( Chenopodium album ) and the sweet pea ( Pisum sativum ) were found to be higher with a doubling in the ambient CO 2 concentration (Hamilton et al. 2008). Those results were consistent with the results of our study. By way of contrast, cultivated tobacco ( Nicotiana tabacum ) grown at elevated CO 2 concentrations for a period of weeks evidenced a 20% reduction in the net photosynthetic rate (Raper and Peedin 1978). The photosynthetic rate of Mexican cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum ) grown at 1,000 ppm CO 2 evidenced lower rates per unit leaf area than the plants grown at 350 ppm of CO 2 (Sasek et al.1985).

Several previous studies have suggested that a reduction in photosynthesis was directly caused by excessive starch accumulation (Onoda et al. 2007, Leakey et al. 2009b), declines in chlorophyll content (Croonenborghs et al. 2009), reductions in Rubisco activity and RuBP regeneration (Zhang et al. 2008, Yamori and von Caemmerer 2009), etc.
We determined that the chlorophyll contents of P. insularis and P. americana were reduced under elevated CO 2 and temperature. However, the photosynthetic rates of two plant species were higher in the treatment, despite the observed decline in chlorophyll content. According to Wullschleger et al. (1992), the chlorophyll contents of the yellow-poplar ( Liriodendron tulipifera ) and white oak ( Quercus alba ) grown at double the ambient CO 2 concentration were reduced by 27% and 55% respectively, but photosynthesis per unit leaf area of two species increased by 60% and 39-51%, respectively. Wulff and Strain (1982) previously determined that the light harvesting capacity of plants grown under elevated CO 2 concentrations was affected by increases in the size and number of photosynthetic units, despite reduced chlorophyll contents. A photosynthetic unit was defined as a light-harvesting unit of photosynthesis, which encompassed approximately 300 light-absorbing molecules, with a molecule of chlorophyll functioning as the reaction center (Emerson and Arnold 1932).
This means that plants grown under elevated CO 2 concentration conditions tend to be more efficient in the capture or use of irradiance for photosynthesis than plants grown at ambient CO 2 levels. Thus, it is reasonable to suppose that increases in the photosynthesis of P. insularis and P. americana grown under treatment were caused by increases in light harvesting capacity per chlorophyll unit.
In most plants, stomatal conductance declined with increases in the levels of CO 2 , because stomata were closed more often at high CO 2 concentrations (Bazzaz 1990). As a consequence, transpiration rates were reduced with consequent increases in water use efficiency (Bazzaz 1990). The stomatal conductance of P. insularis was reduced to 38.1% under the treatment, whereas that of P. americana was not significantly affected by elevated CO 2 concentrations and temperatures.
Lee et al. (2001) previously reported a 23% reduction in the stomatal conductance of 13 perennial species grown for 2 years under elevated CO 2 levels. The endangered Western Himalayan herb, Podophyllum hexandrum , evidenced a significant reduction in stomatal conductance throughout the CO 2 enrichment (Chaturvedi et al. 2009).
Elevated CO 2 concentrations frequently reduce the stomatal conductance of plants and also may reduce the transpiration rate. However, elevated CO 2 concentration and temperature may not always reduce the transpiration rate (Dugas et al. 1997, Zheng et al. 2010), because of other compensatory effects occurring under elevated CO 2 and temperature conditions, such as increased leaf temperature--which might cause increased leaf-air vapor pressure deficits (Katul et al. 2009).
In our study, the transpiration rates of P. insularis and P. americana were increased by elevated CO 2 and temperature. In particular, the transpiration rate of P. insularis was increased by 33.8%, despite a 38.1% reduction in stomatal conductance occurring under elevated CO 2 and temperature.
According to Valle et al. (1985), the leaf temperature of soybeans was approximately 1.5℃ higher at elevated CO 2 concentrations, and leaf resistance was more profound at elevated CO 2 concentrations than under ambient CO 2 conditions. As a consequence, the transpiration rate of soybeans grown under ambient or elevated CO 2 concentrations was not significantly affected by alterations in CO 2 levels. Because the increases in leaf resistance caused by high CO 2 were partially offset by increases in the leaf-to-air vapor pressure gradient induced by the increased transpiration rate owing to increased leaf temperature (Polley et al. 2008). In other words, higher temperatures can increase the transpiration rate by altering the vapor pressure deficit at the leaf surface. From the above discussion, the transpiration rates of P. insularis and P. americana would be more profoundly affected by increased temperature than by elevated CO 2 concentrations.
Increasing CO 2 concentration may generally have the effect of enhancing the water use efficiency of plants, because partial stomatal closure reduces transpiration (Ainsworth and Rogers 2007).
According to our results, the water use efficiency of P. insularis and P. americana was increased under elevated CO 2 and temperature. Runion et al. (2008) determined that Cassia obtusifolia (C 3 ) and Sorghum halepense (C 4 ) cultivated under elevated CO 2 conditions increased water use efficiency by 47% and 59%, respectively. A similar result was also reported for Phaseolus vulgaris (Radoglou et al. 1992). These findings were consistent with our results. Among the photosynthetic parameters, photosynthesis and water use efficiency was particularly associated with plant growth and biomass production.
Invasive species generally evidence higher photosynthetic rates and greater water use efficiency than native species (McAlpine et al. 2008). Pattison et al. (1998) compared five invasive plants and four native plants, and determined that all invasive species evidenced higher photosynthetic rates than the native plants. Deng et al. (2004) also determined that the invasive plant, Mikania micrantha , maintained better water use efficiency than native Mikania cordata .
In EC-ET, photosynthetic rate and water use efficiency of P. americana as invasive plants were 2.2 times and 2.8 times respectively higher than P. insularis as native species. Song et al. (2009) determined that the invasive species evidenced a 67.1% stimulation of the photosynthetic rate, whereas the photosynthesis rate of the native species was increased by 24.8%. This result was consistent with our results. It can be inferred from our results that the photosynthetic characteristics of P. americana may be more profoundly positively affected by elevated CO 2 and temperature conditions than P. insularis .
Enhanced CO 2 concentration associated with increasing temperature was predicted to effect alterations in the biochemical components of plant tissues, including nitrogen contents, carbon contents, and C/N ratios (Cotrufo et al. 1998, Gifford et al. 2000, Zhou and Shangguan 2009).
Generally, the carbon contents increased but the nitrogen contents were reduced in the leaves, and resulted in higher C/N ratios under elevated CO 2 concentrations. A meta-analysis of the 75 reports of the effects of elevated CO 2 on herbivores and host plants determined that the nitrogen contents of plants were reduced by 16.4%, whereas the C/N ratios were increased by 26.6% (Stiling and Cornelissen 2007). Contrary to the prevalent view, the nitrogen contents of P. insularis and P. americana were not significantly affected by elevated CO 2 and temperature, but the carbon contents of the two species grown under EC-ET were increased by 15.6% and 9.1%, respectively. According to Chao and Ping (2009), the leaf carbon contents of Onobrychis viciaefolia were increased by more than 36%, but the leaf nitrogen contents were not significantly changed under elevated CO 2 concentration conditions.
The C/N ratio of P. insularis grown under treatment was increased by 24.4%, but that of P. americana was not significantly affected by elevated CO 2 and temperature. As the nitrogen content of P. americana was increased by 2.4%, rather than reduced as in P. insularis , the carbon content of P. americana was also increased to a lesser degree than that of P. insularis . The higher C/N ratio frequently causes herbivores to increase their consumption to compensate for lower plant quality--the reduced nitrogen content--resulting in increased damage from herbivores (Stiling and Cornelissen 2007). Dermody et al. (2008) determined that elevated CO 2 levels increased the area of soybean leaves removed by insect herbivores. The leaf area loss was associated with reduced nitrogen in the soybean leaves and greater C/N ratios than those noted under elevated CO 2 concentrations.
According to our results, the C/N ratio of P. insularis was approximately 4 times that of P. americana under elevated CO 2 and temperature. Thus, elevated CO 2 and temperature appear to exert greater negative effects on the plant quality of P. insularis than on P. americana via alterations of the C/N ratios in leaves.
In conclusion, our results demonstrated that physiological responses of P. insularis in native plants might be more sensitively influenced than those of P. americana in invasive plants under the conditions relevant to global warming.
