Biological Interactions In Soils And Global Change

Perhaps the principal element of the global change scenario is the steadily increasing annual temperature, which rises about 0.1°C annually. As this increase occurs, there should be a perceptible increase in loss of soil carbon (Schimel et al., 1994; Scharpenseel et al., 1990; Jenkinson etal., 1991). A countervailing tendency will exist with effects of CO2 fertilization, enhancing plant primary production. However, several authors have noted the further constraints of other limiting
