Climate Change Impacts on Soil Processes in Rangelands

Eldridge, David; Greene, Richard; Dean, Christopher

Description

Changing climates are expected to increase the vulnerability of the world’s rangelands to ecosystem degradation. Rising temperatures and altered rainfall patterns are likely to substantially affect plant processes and thus the maintenance of healthy soils and functional soil processes. Changing climates are likely to reduce the ability of rangeland soils to sequester carbon, resist erosion and maintain infiltration and nutrient production processes. This chapter describes the projected changes...[Show more]
