Summary1. Bryophytes cover large territories in cold biomes, where they control soil temperatureregime, and therefore permafrost, carbon and nutrient dynamics. The mechanisms of thiscontrol remain unclear.2. We quantified the dependence of soil temperature fluctuations under bryophyte mats on theinterplay of bryophyte heat conductance traits, mat thickness, density and moisture regimes.3. For seventeen predominant bryophytes in six typical subarctic ecosystems, we assessed insitu soil temperature… CONTINUE READING
