While the results of the study presented here suggest that the evolution of rooted tracheophytes led to an increase in chemical weathering, this enhancement was relatively small compared with vegetation with small or no below-ground organs. The evolution of rooted tracheophytes during the Middle Devonian may thus have been involved in lowering atmospheric pCO2 levels
