What is it about?




The research focuses on how climate warming affects ecosystem respiration in the Arctic and Alpine tundra regions, known for storing vast amounts of organic carbon. By synthesizing data from numerous in-situ warming experiments, the study investigates how an increase in air and soil temperatures contributes to heightened carbon dioxide release from these ecosystems.
