Summary
Abstract: (Adapted from project description)


Problem: A large carbon sink is implied on western rangelands from
data and modeling recently reported in Science. Only forest
ecosystems have been generally considered as potentialy significant
terrestrial carbon sinks. It is now becoming obvious that arid and
semi-arid rangeland ecosystems, occupying nearly half of the earth's
land surface, may also provide ... View entire text
