Default Plants for global warming?

Hey guys, I need to write up a rough draft (TODAY!) of my procedure, and I'm going to go see how increased temperatures can affect plant growth.

Does anyone know of any good plants that can be grown quickly, something similar to brassica rapa?'

thanks

You want a plant to grow in one day? Good luck with that buddy. But I know a couple of plants that will grow pretty fast!

Tomatoe plants, bean plants, and weeds. Actually using weeds isn't a bad idea because they don't cost anything. The problem is getting the seeds lol...

not a plant to grow in one day- I just need to figure out my procedure by today. But some good plants to grow. Weeds... do they have sensitivity to temperatures and other greenhouse gases? Any other plants that are good?

Try something like bean plants. My friend did that once. It just might work for you!

Default Question on your project

I'm pretty sure that this is correct, but doesn't global warming have to do with increased infrared radiation, and the only radiation that helps plants grow is PAR, which is photosynthetically active radiation. So is a simple increase in temperature enough to truly simulate global warming? I could very well be wrong.

mmm, I was thinking around the same lines. I really want to try and simulate different degrees of globalwarming. So I was thinking of doing different temperature increases. But then I also was thinking if I need to include greenhouse gases, and add more of the gases for each level of intensity. So I really don't know what to do. Should I stick with temperature changes? Or should I do gases too?

I'm pretty sure that the way that the greenhouse effect works, the more gasses put into the atmosphere, the more light reflected back, causing the environment warm up.
