Nitrogen fixation in the high arctic is linked to greenhouse gas emissions

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.
