The effects of elevated compared to current atmospheric CO 2 concentration (720 and 365 µL L -1 , respectively) on antioxidative enzymatic activities of two soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) genotypes (R and S) grown in open-top field chambers were investigated. Enzymatic activities of leaves collected 40, 47, 54 and 61 d after planting were measured. Elevated CO 2 significantly decreased activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD, EC 1.15.
