Microorganisms and climate change: terrestrial feedbacks and mitigation options

  title={Microorganisms and climate change: terrestrial feedbacks and mitigation options},
  author={Brajesh Kumar Singh and Richard D Bardgett and Pete Smith and Dave S. Reay},
  journal={Nature Reviews Microbiology},
Microbial processes have a central role in the global fluxes of the key biogenic greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide) and are likely to respond rapidly to climate change. Whether changes in microbial processes lead to a net positive or negative feedback for greenhouse gas emissions is unclear. To improve the prediction of climate models, it is important to understand the mechanisms by which microorganisms regulate terrestrial greenhouse gas flux. This involves… CONTINUE READING
