  • Decreased mass specific respiration under experimental warming is robust to the microbial biomass method employed 

    Bradford, Mark A.; Wallenstein, Matthew D.; Allison, Steven D.; Treseder, Kathleen K.; Frey, Serita D.; Watts, Brian W.; Davies, Christian A.; Maddox, Thomas R.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Mohan, Jacqueline E.; Reynolds, James F. (2009-05)
    Hartley et al. question whether reduction in Rmass, under experimental warming, arises because of the biomass method. We show the method they treat as independent yields the same result. We describe why the substrate-depletion ...
  • Home site advantage in two long-lived arctic plant species : results from two 30-year reciprocal transplant studies 

    Bennington, Cynthia C.; Fetcher, Ned; Vavrek, Milan C.; Shaver, Gaius R.; Cummings, Kelli J.; McGraw, James B. (2012-03-30)
    Reciprocal transplant experiments designed to quantify genetic and environmental effects on phenotype are powerful tools for the study of local adaptation. For long-lived species, especially those in habitats with short ...
  • Thermal adaptation of soil microbial respiration to elevated temperature 

    Bradford, Mark A.; Davies, Christian A.; Frey, Serita D.; Maddox, Thomas R.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Mohan, Jacqueline E.; Reynolds, James F.; Treseder, Kathleen K.; Wallenstein, Matthew D. (2008-07-22)
    In the short-term heterotrophic soil respiration is strongly and positively related to temperature. In the long-term its response to temperature is uncertain. One reason for this is because in field experiments increases ...
