Insight into how plants respond and adapt to the projected increase in [CO 2 ] is important, and understanding will also help to better comprehend the biochemistry of carbon assimilation in general and the consequences for plant performance in a shifting global scenario to which plants must adapt. The UIUC SoyFACE (Free-Air Concentration Enrichment) facility, which simulates atmospheric conditions expected by 2050, provides great advantage to gauge plant responses to elevated CO 2 . In this study, we grew Arabidopsis thaliana Col-0, Cvi-0, WS and Thellungiella halophila in the field within SoyFACE, harvested them after a 10-14d exposure to elevated CO 2 , used Arabidopsis long oligo microarrays combined with metabolite profiles by GC-MS to monitor effects of elevated CO 2 on transcript and metabolite abundance. The results indicated that a core set of signature processes and genes reporting atmospheric CO2 response pathways united Thellungiella and the three Arabidopsis ecotypes, while different behavior in several metabolic pathways distinguished ecotypes among each other and with respect to Thellungiella.
