Global warming effects on soil carbon dynamics of forestsOn 2. March 2016 by Joerg
Soil warming leads to increased microbial respiration, the depleation of soil C and a transfer of carbon from the soil to the atmosphere. To simulate responses of soil systems to Climate Change, we studies a long term soil warming experiment in the Austian alps.
At the long term soil warming site in Achenkirch in the Austrian alps, Andreas Schindlbacher, Wolfgang Wanek Werner Borken and I have examined adaptations of microbial physiology and soil respiration to warming and the effects of soil warming on organic matter chemistry.
