Scientists Unravel the biotic colonization history of subtropical East Asian caves
Caves are formed by chemical reactions between circulating groundwater and surrounding rocks and have an isolated and strongly zonal environment, characterized by dim light, oligotrophy, and low diurnal and annual variation in temperature and humidity. They are home to unique and fragile biotas with high levels of endemism. However, little is known about how the biotic colonization of cave...
A fresh look into grasslands as carbon sink
Grasslands have the capability to store carbon, functioning as an important tool in a battle against climate change. While scientific interest in grassland soil for carbon sequestration is not new, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Colorado State University have provided a fresh analysis of the existing research on soil carbon sequestration in grasslands. According to th...
Scientists revealed changes of vegetation community complexity across China over the past ...
The heterogeneity of vegetation community types within a terrestrial ecosystem, i.e., vegetation community complexity, can mediate its biological processes (e.g., energy harnessing, water and nutrient uptake and cycling), and therefore influences its stability and sustainability to environmental change. Revealing factors contributing to vegetation community complexity changes is key to und...
