Carbon emissions from peatlands may be less than expected

11 mayo 2015

Researchers have discovered a dual mechanism that slows peat decay and may help reduce carbon dioxide emissions from peatlands during times of drought. The discovery might be used to reduce the risk that increased drought and global warming will change Earth’s peatlands from carbon sinks into carbon sources, as many scientists have feared.
