Shifts in Carbon Flux Between Plants and Soil Microorganisms
Entry ID: USDA0283

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The objective of this research is to quantify the flux of C and N in the
plant-soil system, and to determine if increases in atmospheric CO2 alter the
cycling of C and N within the soil. Forest tress grown at elevated CO2
typically increased photosynthetic assimilation and production, and many
allocate a disproportionate amount of carbohydrate toward the production of
below ground structures. It ... View entire text
