Abstract

Climate change is one of the primary agents of the global decline in insect abundance. Because of their narrow thermal ranges, tropical ectotherms are predicted to be most threatened by global warming, yet tests of this prediction are often confounded by other anthropogenic disturbances. We used a ...

Abstract

Tropical forest soils contribute to global warming and ozone depletion due to large nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. However, it is unknown whether the soil N2O fluxes will change under ongoing precipitation regime changes. In this study, two typical precipitation regimes were simulated in a tropical ...

Abstract

Forestation is a key strategy to mitigate climate change caused by anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. However, the impacts of forestation on soil pH remain unclear, despite critical roles of soil pH in regulating key soil biogeochemical processes. Here, we collected a global dataset of soil pH ...

Abstract

Tropical ecosystems contribute significantly to global emissions of methane (CH4), and landscape topography influences the rate of CH4 emissions from wet tropical forest soils. However, extreme events such as drought can alter normal topographic patterns of emissions. Here we explain the dynamics...

Abstract

Non-microbial methane (NM-CH4), emissions from soil might play a significant role in carbon cycling and global climate change. However, the production mechanisms and emission potential of soil NM-CH4 from tropical rainforest remain highly uncertain. In order to explore the laws and characteristics...

Abstract

Global climate changes such as prolonged duration and intensity of drought can lead to adverse ecological consequences in forests. Currently little is known about soil microbial community responses to such drought regimes in tropical forests. In this study, we examined the resistance and resilience ...

Abstract

Soil respiration (SR) in forests contributes significant carbon dioxide emissions from terrestrial ecosystems and is highly sensitive to environmental changes, including soil temperature, soil moisture, microbial community, surface litter, and vegetation type. Indeed, a small change in SR may have...

Abstract

Fine root decomposition, mortality, and production are fundamental components of belowground carbon dynamics in mangrove ecosystems. Mangroves are highly productive ecosystems with huge carbon stocks; however, information on the dynamics of submerged fine roots in mangrove soils is limited. To...

Abstract

Climate warming may threaten the germination strategies of many plants that are uniquely adapted to today's climate. For instance, species that employ physical dormancy (PY) - the production of seeds that are impermeable to water until high temperatures break them, consequently synchronizing...

AbstractFull Text

The study was conducted to understand the soil properties, tree diversity and carbon stock of a forest community of Nagaland University campus, a site located in the topical moist region of Northeast India. The allometric equations were employed to calculate the tree biomass. Soil analysis showed a ...
