Dramatic rise in plant growth in world’s deserts could be down to rising C02 levels
- Researchers studied satellite images between 1982 and 2010
- Regions which have seen a rise in plant growth include Africa, the Middle East and the Australian outback
- Carbon dioxide acts as an insulator and causes temperatures to rise but it also vital for plant growth
Scientists believe a rise in carbon dioxide levels have increased the amount of vegetation in some parts of the world.
After studying satellite images taken between 1982 and 2010, researchers found there has been a dramatic rise in plant growth in the world’s most driest regions including parts of Africa, North America, the Middle East and the Australian outback.
