Nitrogen fixation in the high arctic is linked to greenhouse gas emissions
For my Topics in Life Science course our first assignment is to find a peer reviewed article and write up a response to it. I found this interesting study about arctic soils and carbon storage. Apparently, 50% of the below-ground carbon on Earth is stored in permafrost!
If you are logged in with VCU libraries you should be able to see the link. To find: Web of Science, article by Brummell, M.E., Coxson, D.S., Siciliano, S.D., and K.J. Stewart. Title: How is nitrogen fixation in the high arctic linked to greenhouse gas emissions? From Plant and Soil, Vol. 362, Issue 1-2, p. 215-229, 2013.
