Carbon dioxide is used absorbed by plants during photosynthesis. Plants use CO2 in a chemical reaction to produce sugars, fructose and glucose, which nourish the plant.
Plants feed off carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. The process converts the CO2 to make sugars, which may either be consumed in respiration or used as the raw material to produce other organic compounds needed for plant growth and development.
The idea that increased CO2 concentrations and higher temperatures will help plants comes from the idea that CO2 is consumed in photosynthesis, meaning that if there is more CO2 in the atmosphere, it should help plants create more sugars, have more energy, and become larger. The extent to which this occurs on a large scale is not really known, however, and we must also take into account that while higher temperatures increase plant growth rates to a point, they then begin to decrease. Also, climate change will affect precipitation, which will also have an effect on plants.
