The increasing success of invasive plant species in wetland areas can threaten their capacity to store carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus (C, N, and P). Here, we have investigated the relationships between the different stocks of soil organic carbon (SOC), and total C, N, and P pools in the plant–soil system from eight different wetland areas across the South‐East coast of China, where the invasive tallgrass Spartina alterniflora has replaced the native tall grasses Phragmites australis and the mangrove communities, originally dominated by the native species Kandelia obovata and Avicennia marina.

Bicarbonate plays a fundamental role in the cell pH status in all organisms. In autotrophs, HCO₃⁻ may further contribute to carbon concentration mechanisms (CCM). This is especially relevant in the CO₂-poor habitats of cyanobacteria, aquatic microalgae, and macrophytes. [...]

36 p, 1.8 MB Icelandic grasslands as long-term C sinks under elevated organic N inputs / Leblans, Niki I. W. (Universiteit Antwerpen. Departement Biologie) ; Aerts, Rien (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) ; Vicca, Sara (Universiteit Antwerpen. Departement Biologie) ; Magnússon, Borgthór (Icelandic Institute of Natural History (Gardabaer, Islàndia))
About 10% of the anthropogenic CO₂ emissions have been absorbed by northern terrestrial ecosystems during the past decades. It has been hypothesized that part of this increasing carbon (C) sink is caused by the alleviation of nitrogen (N) limitation by increasing anthropogenic N inputs. [...]

Amazonian forests continuously accumulate carbon (C) in biomass and in soil, representing a carbon sink of 0. 42-0. 65 GtC yr-130 . In recent decades, more than 15% of Amazonian forests have been converted into pastures, resulting in net C emissions (~200 tC ha-1) due to biomass burning and litter mineralization in the first years after deforestation.

Elemental stoichiometry constitutes an inherent link between biogeochemistry and the structure and processes within food webs, and thus is at the core of ecosystem functioning. Stoichiometry allows for spanning different levels of biological organization, from cellular metabolism to ecosystem structure and nutrient cycling, and is therefore particularly useful for establishing links between different ecosystem compartments.

Accurate estimates of C stocks and fluxes of soil organic carbon (SOC) are needed to assess the impact of climate and land use change on soil C uptake and soil C emissions to the atmosphere. Here, we present an assessment of SOC stocks in forests, shrublands and grasslands of peninsular Spain based on field measurements in more than 900 soil profiles. [...]
