Influence of moisture availability on terrestrial ecosystems: effects on soil animal communities along a regional/global scale climate gradient, The
Earth's climate is being altered at an alarming rate, and the consequences of these changes on the planet's ecosystems are unclear. In addition to increased warming due to rising CO2 concentrations, alterations to precipitation patterns will influence soil moisture availability in terrestrial ecosystems and this will have important consequences for plant growth and the ability of soil systems to perform functions such as decomposition and nutrient cycling. The effects on soil systems are especially poorly understood, partly due to the many interactions between environmental conditions and the ...
