    • Biotic and Abiotic Drivers of Topsoil Organic Carbon Concentration in Drylands Have Similar Effects at Regional and Global Scales 

      Gaitan, Juan Jose; Maestre, Fernando Tomás; Bran, Donaldo Eduardo; Buono, Gustavo Gabriel; Dougill, Andrew J.; Garcia Martinez, Guillermo Carlos; Ferrante, Daniela; Guuroh, Reginald Tang; Linstadter, Anja; Massara Paletto, Virginia; Thomas, Andrew David; Oliva, Gabriel Esteban (Springer, 2019-11)
      Drylands contain 25% of the world’s soil organic carbon (SOC), which is controlled by many factors, both abiotic and biotic. Thus, understanding how these factors control SOC concentration can help to design more sustainable ...
    • Soil fungal abundance and plant functional traits drive fertile island formation in global drylands
