Climate change effects on organic matter decomposition rates in ecosystems from the Maritime Antarctic and Falkland Islands / S. Bokhorst, and 3 others.

Title: Climate change effects on organic matter decomposition rates in ecosystems from the Maritime Antarctic and Falkland Islands / S. Bokhorst, and 3 others.
Author(s): Bokhorst, S.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Oxford: Blackwell Publishing
Abstract: Uses laboratory and field experiments at Anchorage Island in Marguerite Bay and Signey Island in South Orkney Islands to investigate responses of organic matter decomposition in Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems to increases in temperature, and contrasts results with those in cool temperate location on Falkland Islands. Higher temperature led to higher organic matter breakdown in laboratory studies, but both laboratory and field studies showed that decomposition was more strongly influenced by local substratum characteristics, especially soil nitrogen availability, and plant functional type composition. Very small responsiveness of organic matter decomposition in field experiments with temperature increase of less than 1°C, compared with laboratory increase of 4 or 8°C, shows that substantial warming is required before significant effects can be detected.
