Researchers Find Rhizosphere Priming Effects of Trees with and without Intraspecific Competition ...

Research have shown that the rhizosphere priming effects (RPEs) apparently affect the organic matter decomposition and nutrient (especially Nitrogen) cycling.

Scientists Find Effect of Nitrogen deposition on Soil Microbial Diversity

N deposition is one of the important factors affecting the global change. Research shows that the N deposition will increase continually in the coming decades. By simulation of N deposition experim...

Scientists Find Effect of Freeze-Thaw Cycles on Terrestrial Nitrogen Cycling

Freeze-thaw cycle is ubiquitous phenomenon at high elevations and temperate zone. On North-hemisphere, 55% terrestrial area experienced seasonal freeze-thaw cycles.

Scientists Explore the Mechanisms Underlying Global Environmental Change Effects on Grassland Pro...

Ongoing global environmental variations have triggered productive research aiming to explore the changes in ecosystem functions.

Scientists Find Rate of Global Soil Organic Carbon Turnover

Soil organic matter is one of the important carbon pools in terrestrial ecosystem. Its tiny change may alter the variation in the concentration of greenhouse gases and then the temperature of earth...
