Carbon Sequestration in China’s Largest Lake

Although lakes cover a small fraction of Earth’s continental land surface, organic carbon burial in their sediments is “considerably higher than in ocean sediments.” The burial of carbon in China’s

Aging Japanese Cedar Plantations Still Sucking CO2 Out of the Air

As more CO2 goes into the atmosphere, Japanese cedar plantations keep removing some of it, even as they exceed their initially allotted life span...

CO2 Enrichment of a Highly-Prized Chinese Medicinal Herb

As the air’s CO2 content rises, the abundance of health-promoting adenosine derived from the roots of the Chinese Woad plant should grow right along with it, to the benefit of many people with a nu

Atmospheric CO2 Helps Oak Trees Recover from Natural Disasters

Following massive aboveground destruction caused by both fires and hurricanes, atmospheric CO2 enrichment is able to bring scrub-oak ecosystems back from the brink of death, so to speak, to once ag
