Comments Mitochondrial sizes in low and high CO2 treatments are statistically equivalent, as reported in the text. Relative counts of mitochondria per unit cell area represent differences in mitochondrial area.Growth in elevated CO(2) increased numbers of mitochondria per unit cell area by 1.3-2.4 times the number in control plants grown in lower CO(2)
