  • The alpine meadow ecosystem is one of the major vegetation biomes on the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau, which hold substantial quantities of soil organic carbon. Pronounced grassland degradations (induced by overgrazing/climate change and further exacerbated by the subterranean rodent activities) that have widely occurred in this ecosystem may significantly alter the non-growing season carbon turnover processes such as carbon dioxide (CO2) efflux, but little is known about how the non-growing season… CONTINUE READING
