Science Daily: Arctic plants may not provide predicted carbon sequestration potential

"The new research considered the impact of a shrubbier Arctic on soil carbon stocks and the overall carbon sequestration potential of these ecosystems. Significantly, it found that some tall shrub communities stimulate recycling of carbon in soils, releasing it back into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide -- meaning that more productive shrubs might not always result in greater carbon sequestration."
