The global carbon-cycle is crucial for climate change. Desert, which has long been neglected in the global carbon-cycle, may sequester enormous volumes of CO2 and play the role of a carbon-sink. As the world's second-largest shifting desert, the Taklimakan Desert (TD) contributes substantially to desert carbon-sinks. However, the contributions of the internal processes of the TD to its carbon-sink and the long-term trend of the carbon-sink under climate change are still unclear. This study will...

Data from: Neighbourhood-dependent root distributions and the consequences on root separation in arid ecosystems

1. Inter-specific root separation is an important example of spatial niche differentiation that drives species coexistence in many ecosystems. Particularly under water-stressed conditions, it is believed to be an inevitable outcome of species interactions. However, evidence for and against this idea has been found. So far, studies aiming at reconciling the debate mainly focus on abiotic determinants. It remains unclear if and to what extent root separation depends on the type and growth form of...
