Soil Organic Matter Processing with Warming in the Moist Boreal Forests of Eastern Canada

Understanding how the vast reservoir of soil organic carbon in boreal systems will respond to warming is critical for predicting future climate. As the boreal forests of eastern North America ...

Soil Erosion as an Influence on Atmospheric CO2

Recent studies indicate that soil erosion may serve as a net sink for carbon, though this is an unresolved controversy in the literature. We have developed a user-friendly, spreadsheet-based model ...

Stable Isotopes of Carbon and Oxygen as Indicators of Tree Response to Climate

Assessing δ13C and δ18O of tree-rings in co-occurring species and relating these parameters to known environmental conditions can tell us much about variation between species in their response to climate. ...
