Palustre at the expense of the abundance of S. recurvum coincided with a continual increase of the distance between Sphagnum surface and water table due to length growth of the plant shoots. In the mesocosms, the Sphagnum species did, however, respond to elevated CO2 during the first summer-autumn period by enhanced length growth at more favourable conditions than in the field including high water levels and lack of competing Polytrichum and vascular plants. The CO2 response was only shortterm, already fading during the second part of the first year, which may have been the result of downregulation of photosynthesis by non-structural carbohydrate accumulation or other limitations suggested by the significantly lower tissue N concentrations and higher C concentrations at elevated CO2 (Tuba et al.
