    • Climate Change Can Accelerate Depletion of Montane Grassland C Stocks 

      Wang, Na; Xia, Longlong; Goodale, Christine L.ORCIDiD; Butterbach‐Bahl, KlausORCIDiD; Kiese, RalfORCIDiD (Global Biogeochemical Cycles, 2021-10-08)
      Climate warming and management will likely affect carbon (C) fluxes of montane grassland ecosystems. In this study, we assessed the effect of simultaneous warming (+2°C) and decreased precipitation (−25%) on carbon exchange ...
    • Effects of water management on peatland water table and peatland subsidence 

      Kalinsky, Kira; Sieber, Ann Christin; Höper, Heinrich (TELMA - Berichte der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Moor- und Torfkunde; Band 51; 2021)
      Drained peatlands are hotspots for carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. In Niedersachsen, 69 % of the peatland area is used for agriculture and is responsible for 11 % of the annual CO2 and N2O emissions. ...
    • Grassland greening on the Mongolian Plateau despite higher grazing intensity 

      Miao, LijuanORCIDiD; Sun, Zhanli; Ren, Yanjun; Schierhorn, Florian; Müller, DanielORCIDiD (Land Degradation & Development, 2020-10-01)
      Changes in land management and climate alter vegetation dynamics, but the determinants of vegetation changes often remain elusive, especially in global drylands. Here we assess the determinants of grassland greenness on ...
