The influence of global warming on soil organic matter (SOM) dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems remains unclear. In this study, we combined soil fractionation with isotope analyses to examine SOM dynamics after nine years of experimental warming in a North America tallgrass prairie. Soil samples from the control plots and the warmed plots were separated into four aggregate sizes ( >2000 μm, 250–2000 μm, 53–250 μm, and <53 μm), and three density fractions (free light fraction – LF, intra… CONTINUE READING
