This is how climate change affect the decomposition of organic material

2016-05-25

Some of the organic material that is transported from the land ecosystems to the oceans is decomposed by microorganisms. To know the rate of this decomposition is crucial for our understanding of how the degradation of organic carbon is affected by environmental changes.  A new study by researchers from Limnology at Uppsala University and SLU shows how the decomposition is affected by the water balance.
