Drought impact on forest carbon dynamics and fluxes in Amazonia

Severe drought in a tropical forest ecosystem suppresses photosynthetic carbon uptake and plant maintenance respiration, but growth is maintained, suggesting that, overall, less carbon is available for tree tissue maintenance and defence, which may…

Long-term decline of the Amazon carbon sink

The capacity of Amazonian forests to sequester carbon has weakened with potentially important implications for climate change.

Global carbon export from the terrestrial biosphere controlled by erosion

Particulate organic carbon export from the terrestrial biosphere is primarily controlled by physical erosion, and tectonic and climatic forcing of physical erosion may favour biospheric particulate organic carbon sequestration over silicate…
