Probabilistic forecast for twenty-first-century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-10-01)
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Integrated Global System Model is used to make probabilistic projections of climate change from 1861 to 2100. Since the model’s first projections were published in 2003, ...
Consequences of considering carbon–nitrogen interactions on the feedbacks between climate and the terrestrial carbon cycle
(American Meteorological Society, 2008-08-01)
The impact of carbon–nitrogen dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems on the interaction between the carbon cycle and climate is studied using an earth system model of intermediate complexity, the MIT Integrated Global Systems ...

Biogeography of bacterioplankton in lakes and streams of an arctic tundra catchment
(Ecological Society of America, 2007-06)
Bacterioplankton community composition was compared across 10 lakes and 14 streams within the catchment of Toolik Lake, a tundra lake in Arctic Alaska, during seven surveys conducted over three years using denaturing ...
Consequence of altered nitrogen cycles in the coupled human and ecological system under changing climate: the need for long-term and site-based research.
Anthropogenically derived nitrogen (N) has a central role in global environmental changes, including climate change, biodiversity loss, air pollution, greenhouse gas emission, water pollution, as well as food production ...
Plant community responses to experimental warming across the tundra biome
(National Academy of Sciences of the USA, 2006-01-20)
Recent observations of changes in some tundra ecosystems appear to be responses to a warming climate. Several experimental studies have shown that tundra plants and ecosystems can respond strongly to environmental change, ...
Soil carbon fluxes and stocks in a Great Lakes forest chronosequence
We measured soil respiration and soil carbon stocks, as well as micrometeorological variables in a chronosequence of deciduous forests in Wisconsin and Michigan. The chronosequence consisted of (1) four recently disturbed ...
Adjustment of forest ecosystem root respiration as temperature warms
Adjustment of ecosystem root respiration to warmer climatic conditions can alter the autotrophic portion of soil respiration and influence the amount of carbon available for biomass production. We examined 44 published ...
Thermal adaptation of soil microbial respiration to elevated temperature
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 ...
Use of non-natal estuaries by migratory striped bass (Morone saxatilis) in summer
(U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA NMFS, 2009-07)
For most migratory fish, little is known about the location and size of foraging areas or how long individuals remain in foraging areas, even though these attributes may affect their growth, survival, and impact on ...
