A new study suggests that Canada’s boreal forests could absorb more carbon than they release as climate change progresses.
As temperatures continue to rise, snow-dwelling microbes could accelerate melting and influence downstream ecosystems.
With thawing permafrost projected to release significant amounts of carbon in response to climate change, one of the editors of JGR: Biogeosciences reflects on the slew of recent papers in this field.
Prevailing nutrient uptake models do not fit Arctic plants. Scientists test a new option that overcomes older models’ shortcomings.
Study investigates how deforestation can cause different land surface temperature effects depending on the time of day.
Rising temperatures that reduce snow cover leave soils vulnerable to frost, reducing silicon uptake by trees, with potential effects on downstream ecosystems.
Scientists measured carbon isotopes in certain types of fungi to assess whether the organisms can track how climate change is affecting grasses.
Researchers revisit an old theory about the ethereal patterns of vegetation that form in some arid landscapes.
A team of international scientists surveyed an array of Earth ecosystem models, recommending several ways to reduce uncertainties.
An international team probed Arctic permafrost samples to better understand the carbon feedback loop that could be set off by future thawing.
