Air Pressure and Plants
Date: Around 1999
How does increased air pressure effect plant growth?
Air pressure would affect the rates of photosynthesis, and in turn plant growth. Please see a plant physiology text on diffusion coefficients and conductance as related to altitude, such as Park S. Nobel's
"Physicochemical and Environmental Plant Physiology", Academic Press.
