Sci Rep 4:4586. 2014..Our work indicates that zero tillage could play a significant role in minimising emissions of GHGs from soils and contribute to efforts to mitigate against climate change. ..
- Habitat type determines herbivory controls over CO2 fluxes in a warmer ArcticSofie Sjögersten
School of Biosciences, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Ecology 89:2103-16. 2008..We conclude that herbivory will modulate direct climate warming responses of Arctic tundra with implications for the ecosystem C balance; however, the magnitude and direction of the response will be habitat-specific...
- The impact of climate change on ecosystem carbon dynamics at the Scandinavian mountain birch forest-tundra heath ecotoneSofie Sjögersten
School of Biosciences, University of Nottingham, UK
Ambio 38:2-10. 2009..Mesic soils underlying both forest and tundra heath are currently weak sinks of atmospheric methane, but the strength of this sink could be increased with climate warming and/or drying...
- Potential impact of CO2 leakage from carbon capture and storage systems on field bean (Vicia faba)Manal Al-Traboulsi
School of Biosciences, University of Nottingham, Sutton Bonington Campus, Loughborough LE12 5RD, UK
Physiol Plant 146:261-71. 2012..These findings suggest that leakage of CO(2) from transport pipelines or CCS sites may greatly reduce seedling emergence and crop establishment in the vicinity of such infrastructures...
