measured and modelled δ 13 C in α-cellulose is equal to 0.93, whereas the value of the correlation coefficient between the measured and modelled δ 18 O in α-cellulose is equal to 0.78. Water use efficiency (WUE) and temperature anomaly Diffuse air pollution (carbon dioxide) caused the variation in the ratio of water used in plant metabolism to water lost by the plant through transpiration (WUE). In the period of time from 1975 and 2012, according to NASA (2016) the global concentration of mid-tropospheric carbon dioxide ranged from ca . 330 ppm to ca . 393 ppm
