CO2 concentrations and related environmental factors were measured in an Asian tropical rainforest located in a small valley in Xishuangbanna, SW China, with the aim of investigating the CO2 pooling effect and its mechanism of formation. Pooling of CO2 was observed during the evening (1600–2200 hours local time); the accumulated CO2 subsequently flowed away(More)

The consequences of sharp rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]) and global warming on vascular plants have raised great concerns, but researches focusing on non-vascular epiphytes remain sparse. We transplanted nine common cryptogamic epiphyte species (3 bryophytes, 6 lichens) from field sites to growth chambers (control, elevated [CO2],(More)
Drought is predicted to have a profound impact on soil respiration. This study aimed to assess the effects of long-term precipitation decrease on soil respiration in a tropical rainforest. A precipitation reduction experiment was conducted in a tropical forest in southwest China at the beginning of 2011. Soil respiration and environmental parameters were(More)
