Carbon Fluxes in the Rhizosphere

  title={Carbon Fluxes in the Rhizosphere},
  author={Weixin Cheng and Alexander Gershenson},
Terrestrial ecosystems are intimately connected to atmospheric CO2 levels through photosynthetic fixation of CO2, sequestration of C into biomass and soils, and the subsequent release of CO2 through respiration and decomposition of organic matter. Considering all the pools and fluxes of C within ecosystems, C-cycling belowground is increasingly being recognized as one of the most significant components of the carbon cycle (e.g., Zak and Pregitzer 1998). Globally, the input of C to the soil has… CONTINUE READING
