Featured Research: Belowground Carbon Flux
Here is a figure from our recent work showing a positive
relationship between tree diversity and soil CO2 efflux.
Our lab uses multiple methods to understand variation in
below ground processes in response to tree diversity. We have
examined C flux below ground using scanner-based minirhizotron
technology (CI-600), IRGA technology, estimation of total below
ground carbon allocation, root excavation, and (in collaboration
with other labs) nitrogen mineralization and microbial community
The CI-600 is a scanner based technology which takes large
underground images (21.59 x 19.56 cm) in buried 6.99 cm diam.
acrylic tubes. For more information please see www.cid-inc.com.
