Annual variation in soil respiration and its component parts in two structurally contrasting woody savannas in Central Brazil

Butler, Andre; Meir, Patrick; Saiz, Gustavo; Maracahipes, Leandro; Marimon, Beatriz Schwantes; Grace, J

Description

Background and aims: Due to the high spatial and temporal variation in soil CO2 efflux, terrestrial carbon budgets rely on a detailed understanding of the drivers of soil respiration from a diverse range of ecosystems and climate zones. In this study we aim to evaluate the independent influence of vegetation structure and climate on soil CO2 efflux within cerrado ecosystems. Methods: We examine the seasonal and diel variation of soil CO2 efflux, including its autotrophic and heterotrophic...[Show more]
