Resumo: In this study we present the results of growth analysis of in vitro-regenerated chestnut hybrid plantlets (Castanea sativa x C. crenata), during the acclimatization stage, using two CO2 concentrations (350 and 700 μLL-1) at 250 μmol m-2 s-1 as irradiance level (PPFD). Elevated CO2 did not affect the survival rate and it was susceptible to increase progressive autotrophy, expressed by a significant increase in relative growth, shoot/root ratio and leaf area ratio (LAR). The plants under elevated CO2 showed an higher stomatal frequency but the new leaves developed at the end of acclimatization revealed a gradual normal stomatal morphology and they reduced the stomatal frequency. Their morphology showed an effective water loss control which is one of the most important problem during this critical phase of the autotrophic competence acquiring process. The net photosynthesis rate was similar in both treatments but the plants acclimatized at elevated CO2 showed an increase in maximum photosynthetic rate (Amax), and this can lead to a better physiological development. We think that the gains that we have achieved with the use of elevated CO2 can be more significant if an higher light intensity can be used instead because they have a better response capacity to an increment of the level of irradiance.
