Biochar is a high carbon material resulting from biomass pyrolysis that, when applied to croplands, can increase soil carbon and soil water retention. Both effects are of critical importance in semi-arid regions, where carbon decline and desertification are the main drivers of soil degradation. [...]

StatUa Center for Statistics)
Increasing temperatures can accelerate soil organic matter decomposition and release large amounts of CO₂ to the atmosphere, potentially inducing positive warming feedbacks. Alterations to the temperature sensitivity and physiological functioning of soil microorganisms may play a key role in these carbon (C) losses. [...]

Climate Change Science Institute and Environmental Sciences Division)
The microbial metabolic quotient (MMQ), microbial respiration per unit of biomass, is a fundamental factor controlling heterotrophic respiration, the largest carbon flux in soils. The magnitude and controls of MMQ at regional scale remain uncertain. [...]

32 p, 1.6 MB Short-term mesofauna responses to soil additions of corn stover biochar and the role of microbial biomass / Domene, X. (Xavier) (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Hanley, Kelly (Cornell University) ; Enders, Akio (Cornell University) ; Lehmann, Johannes (Cornell University)
Biochar additions have been suggested to influence soil microbial communities that, through a cascade effect, may also impact soil fauna. In turn, any direct biochar effects on fauna can influence microbial communities through grazing, physical fragmentation of organic debris (and biochar) and modifying soil structure. [...]
