  Discovery Channel :: News - Animals :: Rising CO2 Levels Fueling Shrub Invasion
Shrubs have been steadily encroaching on traditional rangelands from the Great Plains in the United States to Mongolia and Kazakhstan for at least two centuries, and in the past 10 to 15 years, ecologists have linked the trend to increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The study provides the first piece of evidence to support that theory and suggests that these kinds of environmental conditions favor shrubs over native grasses, presumably because the plants are better able to use CO2 for photosynthesis.
With carbon dioxide levels projected to increase sharply by the end of the century, the findings have serious implications for the management of these open rangelands which cover about 40 percent of the Earth's surface and are typically used to support livestock, the authors of the paper said.

 shrub. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Shrubs are an important feature of permanent landscape planting, being used for formal decorative groups, hedges, screens, and background plantings, to which they contribute pattern, color, fragrance, or utility.
Many shrubs are beautiful even in winter because some keep their green foliage (as in the evergreen arborvitae and rhododendron), while many deciduous shrubs have decorative stem and branch forms or brightly colored fruits.
Tree species may grow as shrubs under unfavorable environmental conditions, and the distinction between trees and shrubs becomes one of usage rather than of strictly botanical characteristics.

 Demography of desert phreatophytic shrubs
The answer was no: shrubs died randomly with respect to a shrub's llocation relative to its neighbors.
Shrubs were dispersed randomly both before and after the mortality caused by lack of water.
Data from the long-term study suggested that once a phreatophytic shrub sends its long tap root to deep soil moisture, shrubs no longer compete for water because the ground water is limitless provided the shrub is able to track it by growing its tap root.

When working with a short shrub or with a young shrub that you’ve just brought home from the nursery, repeat this step for several years until the tree reaches your goal height.
In spring, once the shrub reaches the desired height, select three to five large side branches at the top of each trunk to form the main canopy.
