Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change: Are Physical Properties of Stomata Unresponsive to CO2? Provided by the Internet Archive´s Wayback Machine.
Stomatal density (SD; the number of stomata per unit leaf area) and stomatal index (SI; the number of stomata divided by the sum of the numbers of stomatal and epidermal cells) are often used as proxies of past atmospheric CO2 concentrations. The evidence for the validity of this technique is said by Reid et al. to rest primarily upon paleontological data and growth chamber studies. Hence, they sought to broaden the experimental basis for the protocol by adding field studies to the mix of evidence supporting it.
