I've answered my own previous question on the Biosphere 2 problem:

Excessively high organic content in the soil resulted in high CO2 production and high O2 consumption. CO2 was adsorbed by the concrete, and plants did not make up the O2 loss.

URL for Biosphere2:

Current research focuses on experiments on CO2 and various ecosystems. It always seems that the best scientific experiments are the failures, which get recycled into new experiments.

Sorry to take up the extra space with my last post.
