Responses of ecosystem carbon cycle to experimental warming: a meta-analysis.
Global warming potentially alters the terrestrial carbon (C) cycle, likely feeding back to further climate warming. However, how the ecosystem C cycle responds and feeds back to warming remainsExpand
Holocene monsoon climate documented by oxygen and carbon isotopes from lake sediments and peat bogs in China: a review and synthesis
There has been much recent debate about Holocene climate variation in the monsoon region of China, especially the temporal pattern of variations in precipitation, the time-transgressive nature of theExpand
Occurrence of pharmaceuticals in a municipal wastewater treatment plant: mass balance and removal processes.
Occurrence and removal efficiencies of fifteen pharmaceuticals were investigated in a conventional municipal wastewater treatment plant in Michigan. Concentrations of these pharmaceuticals wereExpand

The aim of this study was to evaluate soils from 12 different land use types on human cancer risks, with the main focus being on human cancer risks related to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).Expand
Total concentrations and chemical speciation of heavy metals in liquefaction residues of sewage sludge.
The risk (including bioavailability and eco-toxicity) of heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Cu, Cd, Cr and Ni) in liquefaction residues (LR) of sewage sludge (SS) was estimated, according to both the speciationExpand
Effects of physico-chemical parameters on the bacterial and fungal communities during agricultural waste composting.
The goal of this study was to identify and prioritize some of the physico-chemical parameters that contributed to bacterial and fungal community compositions during agricultural waste composting.Expand
The salt stress relief and growth promotion effect of Rs-5 on cotton
The effect of the Rs-5 bacteria strain, identified as Klebsiella oxytoca and isolated with ACC as the sole nitrogen source, on salt stressed cotton seedling growth was studied. It was demonstratedExpand
Comparative field permeability measurement of permeable pavements using ASTM C1701 and NCAT permeameter methods.
Fully permeable pavement is gradually gaining support as an alternative best management practice (BMP) for stormwater runoff management. As the use of these pavements increases, a definitive testExpand
Relative contributions of archaea and bacteria to microbial ammonia oxidation differ under different conditions during agricultural waste composting.
The aim of this study was to compare the relative contribution of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and bacteria (AOB) to nitrification during agricultural waste composting. The AOA and AOB amoA geneExpand
Responses of enzymatic activities within soil aggregates to 9-year nitrogen and water addition in a semi-arid grassland
Soil microorganisms secrete enzymes used to metabolize carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) from the organic materials typically found in soil. Because of the connection with the activeExpand
