Terrer, C.; et al. (2021): A trade-off between plant and soil carbon storage under elevated CO2

Terrer, C.; Phillips, R. P.; Hungate, B. A.; Rosende, J.; Pett-Ridge, J.; Craig, M. E. et al. (2021): A trade-off between plant and soil carbon storage under elevated CO2. In Nature 591 (7851), pp. 599–603. DOI: 10.1038/s41586-021-03306-8.

"Here we synthesized data from 108 eCO2 experiments and found that the effect of eCO2 on SOC stocks is best explained by a negative relationship with plant biomass: when plant biomass is strongly stimulated by eCO2, SOC storage declines; conversely, when biomass is weakly stimulated, SOC storage increases."

Shafiee, Roxana T. (2021): Blue Carbon

Shafiee, Roxana T. (2021): Blue Carbon. SPICe Briefing / Pàipear-ullachaidh SPICe. The Scottish Parliament.

"This briefing outlines the current understanding of carbon captured and stored in Scotland's coastal and marine environment, known as blue carbon. This briefing outlines the known threats to blue carbon stores, and compares their carbon storage capacity to Scotland's wellknown terrestrial carbon stores: peatland and forestry. In addition, this briefing explores Scottish policy areas relevant to the protection of blue carbon stores on the basis of their contributions to biodiversity and climate change mitigation."
