Surprising ecological results and the carbon balance gradient in European forests
Piovesan & Adams (2000) criticized the EUROFLUX network of carbon flux measurements based on the assumption that the results were 'surprising', as they appeared to contradict the generally accepted relationship that rates of soil and plant respiration increase with increasing temperature. The EUROFLUX studies showed an overall opposite trend, with higher rates of ecosystem respiration at the cooler, northern latitudes. In this paper the concept of 'surprising' results in ecology is reviewed and...[Show more]
