Read summaries of three recent scientific article on climate change here. Good news for climate science from the vegetable world: as global
temperatures rise, plants in the forests and fields may breathe in more
carbon dioxide, and respire a little less, according to an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. But bad news too: a new study in Environmental Research Letters concludes
that more carbon will be released by climate change than can be stored
by trees and shrubs as they colonise more and more of the high
latitudes, and a report in the journal PLOS One suggests that microbial communities
might not be capable of responding quickly to climate change.
