Fungi and animal diversity shown to be as important for forest productivity as tree diversity

Date
6 August 2018
Abstract

Greenhouse gases are the main cause of global warming, and forest soil plays an important role in greenhouse gas flux. Near natural forest management is one of the most promising options for improving the function of forests as carbon sinks. However, its effects on greenhouse gas emissions are not...

Abstract

Climate change and rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations are likely to alter tropical forest net primary productivity (NPP), potentially affecting soil C storage. We examined biochemical and physical changes in soil C fractions in a humid tropical forest where experimental litter...

Abstract

Methane (CH4) is a vital greenhouse gas with a 28-fold higher global warming potential than carbon dioxide when considering a molar basis for the time horizon of 100 years. Here, we investigated the variation of soil CH4 fluxes, soil physiochemical properties, and CH4-related bacteria community...

AbstractFull Text

Soil CO2 efflux in mature plots of Gmelina arborea and Swietenia macrophylla (exotic broad-leaved trees) and Pinus caribaea (exotic conifer) was measured monthly in relation to soil temperature, air temperature and relative humidity from January till March 2016. Soil bulk density, pH, total C,...

Abstract

In this study, we quantify the impacts of climate and land use on soil N2O and CH4 fluxes from tropical forest, agroforest, arable and savanna ecosystems in Africa. To do so, we measured greenhouse gases (GHG) fluxes from 12 different ecosystems along climate and land-use gradients at Mt....

Abstract

Soil organic matter (SOM) quantity and quality can be directly altered by climate, and SOM has been proposed as both a significant source and sink of carbon dioxide. To understand the factors that influence SOM, the present study focuses on the relationship between precipitation and soil physical...

Abstract

The temperature response of soil microbial respiration (Rh) is of significance, with the optimum temperature of Rh being the key parameter for accurately modeling how it responds to temperature change under climate warming scenarios. However, knowledge about Topt in natural ecosystems remains...

Abstract

Organic carbon saturation in soils refers to the theoretical maximum soil organic carbon (SOC) that can be associated with and stabilized on fine silt plus clay particles (F <20 µm). We reviewed the literature dealing with SOC distribution between soil fractions to evaluate carbon saturation for tropical soils and estimate the C storage potential of cropland. We collected 258 data points on SOC distribution between...

Abstract

Climate change mitigation and food security are two of the main challenges of human society. Agroforestry systems, defined as the presence of trees on external and internal boundaries, cropland, or on any other available niche of farmland, can provide both climate change mitigation and food. There...
