Climate warming experiment finds unexpected results

From Phys.org January 4, 2019 by Emily Pontecorvo, American Geophysical Union Tropical forests store about a third of Earth’s carbon and about two-thirds of its above-ground biomass. Most climate change models predict that as the world warms, all of that biomass will decompose more quickly, which would send a lot more carbon dioxide into the…
