Carbon Exchange on the Short-grass Steppe and the Northern Mixed Prairie.
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.RRRU.Carbonxchng

Abstract: (adapted from project abstracts)

Problems: While the importance of rangelands for domestic animal
grazing and wildlife have been appreciated for some time, their role
in the global C cycle is only now being investigated. With atmospheric
CO2 concentrations rising and the potential for global climate change
becoming more evident, there is a need to understand the capability
of these vast lands to ... View entire text
