To simulate the effect of temperature on soil respiration rates, we translocated soil cores among four sites (3030, 1500, 1000, and 200 m asl) along an altitudinal tropical forest gradient in the Peruvian Andes, traversing a difference in mean annual temperature of 13.9C. Rates of total (Rs) and heterotrophic (Rsh) respiration were measured twice a month from April 2007 to March 2009 and additionally for full 24 h periods. The diurnal range in Rs increased with altitude; this variation was...[Show more]
