Data from CzechGlobe ecosystem stations helped to clarify the relationship between temperature and respiration of ecosystems
Respiration of ecosystems is a major component of the global carbon cycle. Respiration is strongly dependent on air and soil temperature and determines whether terrestrial ecosystems will be a carbon sink or carbon source. A study, whose results were published by the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, by an international team of scientists from 27 institutions around the world including the Global Change Research Institute CAS – CzechGlobe, focused on describing the respiration of ecosystems in a global context.
The results revealed the thresholds of the global relationship of ecosystem respiration to air and soil temperature and confirmed that the respiration of ecosystems in cold climate zones depends significantly more on temperature than in warm (tropical) zones, where respiration of ecosystems depends more on water and nutrient availability.More
As of 1 February 2021, Global Change Research Institute CAS announces the 2nd internal call for project proposals, which will apply for funding through the CzeGGA internal grant program, in accordance with the implementation of the HRS4R Project Action Plan.
The grant program is intended for CzechGlobe researchers who, at the time of announcing the program, are in the PhD student position and at the same time in the 1st to 4th year of PhD studies or in the post-doc position within 5-year period since defending their PhD thesisMore
Tree rings reveal how volcanic eruptions have shaped the climate and history over the past two millennia
An international team of scientists led by Professor Ulf Büntgen from the Global Change Research Institute CAS and the University of Cambridge presented a new approach to climate reconstruction in the journal called Dendrochronologia. The reconstructed climate thus provides a new perspective on historical periods in which climatic extremes and associated environmental reactions have probably had an extremely great impact on social events. Among other things, scientists have shown that in the last two millennia, volcanoes have played a greater role in natural temperature variability than originally thought.
