n the cold, arctic climate, global warming due to greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere might be expected to increase both primary production and heterotrophic (mainly soil) respiration. Which of these processes will increase more or more rapidly? The answer to this question is critical in understanding the effects of warming on the net carbon balance of arctic ecosystems and of the earth itself. If primary production increases faster than heterotrophic respiration, carbon will be… CONTINUE READING
