Topographically driven differences in energy and water constrain climatic control on forest carbon sequestration
Mountains are vital to ecosystems and human society given their influence on global carbon and water cycles. Yet the extent to which topography regulates montane forest carbon uptake and storage remains poorly understood. ...
Variable respiration rates of incubated permafrost soil extracts from the Kolyma River lowlands, north-east Siberia
Thawing permafrost supplies dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to aquatic systems
Interacting effects of climate and landscape physiography on pinon pine growth using an individual-based approach
Forest and woodland ecosystems play a crucial role in the global carbon cycle and may be strongly affected by changing climate. Here, we use an individual-based approach to model pinon pine (Pinus edulis) radial growth ...
Using Regional Climate Projections to Guide Grassland Community Restoration in the Face of Climate Change
Grassland loss has been extensive worldwide, endangering the associated biodiversity and human well-being that are both dependent on these ecosystems. Ecologists have developed approaches to restore grassland communities ...
Vegetation dynamics during last 35,000 years at a cold desert locale: preferential loss of forbs with increased aridity
Paleoecological records are an important source of data to better understand ecological responses to climate. To help understand vegetation-climate relationships in the Great Basin cold desert of North America, we analyzed ...
Timing of precipitation in an arid environment: Effects on population performance of a large herbivore
Climate models predict that shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns are likely to occur across the globe. Changing climate will likely have strong effects on arid environments as a result of increased temperatures, ...
