Decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) is sensitive to vegetation and climate change. Here, we investigated the influence of changes in forest types on the mineralization of soil carbon (C) and nitrogen (N), and their temperature sensitivity (Q10) and coupling relationships by using a laboratory soil incubation experiments. We sampled soils from four(More)
We combine the process-based ecosystem model (Biome-BGC) with climate change-scenarios based on both RegCM3 model outputs and historic observed trends to quantify differential effects of symmetric and asymmetric warming on ecosystem net primary productivity (NPP), heterotrophic respiration (Rh) and net ecosystem productivity (NEP) of six ecosystem types(More)
The interannual net primary production variation and trends of a Picea schrenkiana forest were investigated in the context of historical changes in climate and increased atmospheric CO2 concentration at four sites in the Tianshan Mountain range, China. Historical changes in climate and atmospheric CO2 concentration were used as Biome–BGC model drivers to(More)
Subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forests (EBF) face great pressure from global climate change. However, little consensus exists related to how coexisting trees in these forests will respond to climatic change. We used tree rings to establish climate-growth relationships of three coexisting dominant canopy tree species in an EBF located in the Gutianshan(More)
