MeSH headings : Carbon / metabolism; Carbon Dioxide / metabolism; Mycorrhizae / metabolism; Nitrogen / metabolism; Plant Development; Plants / microbiology; Soil Microbiology
TL;DR: Evidence is presented from four independent microcosm and field experiments demonstrating that CO2 enhancement of AMF results in considerable soil carbon losses, challenging the assumption that AMF protect against degradation of organic carbon in soil and raising questions about the current prediction of terrestrial ecosystem carbon balance under future climate-change scenarios.
