- Drought effects on allocation of recent carbon: from beech leaves to soil CO2 effluxNadine K Ruehr
Institute of Plant Science, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
New Phytol 184:950-61. 2009..This will probably affect soil biogeochemical cycling, with potential consequences including slower soil nitrogen cycling and changes in C-sequestration potential under future climate conditions...
- Soil respiration fluxes in a temperate mixed forest: seasonality and temperature sensitivities differ among microbial and root-rhizosphere respirationNadine K Ruehr
Institute of Plant Science, ETH Zurich, Universitaetsstrasse 2, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
Tree Physiol 30:165-76. 2010..This clearly shows that root respiration and its apparent temperature sensitivity highly depend on plant phenology and thus on canopy assimilation and carbon allocation belowground...
