The alpine grasslands of the Tibetan Plateau store 23.2 Pg soil organic carbon (SOC), which becomes susceptible to microbial degradation with climate warming. However, accurate prediction of how the soil carbon (C) stock changes under future climate warming is hampered by our limited understanding of below-ground complex microbial communities. Here, we show that 4 years of warming strongly stimulated methane (CH4) uptake by 93.8% and aerobic respiration (CO2) by % in the soils of alpine...
