Summary

 

Summary

Climate change is caused by an imbalance in the global carbon cycle - human activity has increased the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere. To predict and mitigate the effects of climate change, we need to understand how carbon flows between the atmosphere and its two other major reservoirs on land: plants and soils. The Waring Ecology Lab at Imperial College London investigates how the ecology of plant and soil microbial communities influences the carbon cycle and its feedbacks on climate change.
