When dealing with agricultural commodities such as grain crops, seeds comprise the yield; and in such cases, the biomass of one is the biomass of the other. Hence, when looking for effects of elevated CO2 on the seeds of such crops, one is naturally interested in something more than just their final biomass; and there are a number of pertinent papers considering the sources of biomass production, as well as seed properties that go beyond biomass, which we explore in this review.
