Contribution of root respiration to total soil respiration in a Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel. grassland of northeast China



Contribution of root respiration to total soil respiration in a Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel. grassland of northeast China



Journal of Integrative Plant Biology 48(4): 409-414



The loss of carbon through root respiration is an important component of grassland carbon budgets. However, few data are available concerning the contribution of root respiration to total soil respiration in grasslands in China. We investigated seasonal variations of soil respiration rate, root biomass, microbial biomass C and organic C content of the soil in a semi-arid Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel. grassland of northeast China during the 2002 growing season (from May to September).
