From Sink to Source: Peatland Community Structure and Its Influence on Drought Response in Peatland CO2 Exchange

From Sink to Source: Peatland Community Structure and Its Influence on Drought Response in Peatland CO2 Exchange

Peatlands contain vast stores of organic carbon; however, these stores are sensitive to changes in temperature and moisture. Periods of drought can cause peatlands to temporarily act as sources of carbon rather than carbon sinks. As rising temperatures and the potential for more intense droughts in many areas are predicted under climate change projections, we […]

Reduced Tillage Practices: Are they really a “climate-friendly” alternative?

Conservation Tillage: The Search for Sustainable Agriculture With both the global population and temperatures on the rise, there is an ever-growing need for the development of ways to help feed the masses while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Conservation tillage appeared to be the answer to both, however, a recent study by Lognoul et al. (2016) […]
