  • Adjustment of forest ecosystem root respiration as temperature warms 

    Burton, Andrew J.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Frey, Serita D. (2008-06)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
