Responses of terrestrial ecosystems to temperature and precipitation change: a meta‐analysis of experimental manipulation
Global mean temperature is predicted to increase by 2–7 °C and precipitation to change across the globe by the end of this century. To quantify climate effects on ecosystem processes, a number of…
The effect of elevated CO2 on the chemical composition and construction costs of leaves of 27 C3 species
We determined the proximate chemical composition as well as the construction costs of leaves of 27 species, grown at ambient and at a twice-ambient partial pressure of atmospheric CO2. These species…
13C and 15N natural abundance of the soil microbial biomass
A Comprehensive Census of Microbial Diversity in Hot Springs of Tengchong, Yunnan Province China Using 16S rRNA Gene Pyrosequencing
A comprehensive, cultivation-independent census of microbial communities in 37 samples collected from these geothermal fields, encompassing sites ranging in temperature from 55.1 to 93.6°C, in pH from 2.5 to 9.4, and in mineralogy from silicates in Rehai to carbonates in Ruidian significantly expands the current understanding of the microbiology in Tengchong hot springs.
15N enrichment as an integrator of the effects of C and N on microbial metabolism and ecosystem function.
The results support the idea that the N isotope composition of an organism is determined by the balance between N assimilation and dissimilation, and integrates the effects of C and N availability on microbial metabolism and ecosystem processes.
Effect of temperature on metabolic activity of intact microbial communities: Evidence for altered metabolic pathway activity but not for increased maintenance respiration and reduced carbon use…
Does elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration inhibit mitochondrial respiration in green plants
There is abundant evidence that a reduction in mitochondrial respiration of plants occurs when atmospheric CO2 is increased, and recent reviews suggest that doubling the present Ca will reduce the respiration rate [per unit dry weight (DW)] by 15 to 18%.

CO2 Elicits Long-Term Decline in Nitrogen Fixation
Rising atmospheric carbon dioxide is expected to cause a large carbon sink in land ecosystems, partly mitigating human-driven climate change and increasing biological nitrogen fixation with rising C a has been observed.
