Data from: Increased annual methane uptake driven by warmer winters in an alpine meadow

Peiyan Wang
Pronounced non-growing season warming and changes in soil freeze-thaw (F-T) cycles can dramatically alter net methane (CH4) exchange rates between soils and the atmosphere. However, the magnitudes and drivers of warming impacts on CH4 uptake in different stages of the F-T cycle are poorly understood in cold alpine ecosystems, which have been found to be a net sink of atmospheric CH4. Here, we reported a year-round ecosystem daily CH4 uptake in an alpine meadow on...

Decreased ultraviolet radiation and decomposer biodiversity inhibit litter decomposition under continuous nitrogen inputs

Bin Wei, Dianye Zhang, Dan Kou, Guibiao Yang, Futing Liu, Yunfeng Peng & Yuanhe Yang
Atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition has altered biogeochemical cycles and ecosystem functioning. As a key process involved in carbon and nutrient cycles in terrestrial ecosystems, litter decomposition is sensitive to external N inputs. However, it remains unclear how the interactions of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, soil biodiversity (bacteria, fungi and invertebrates) and conventional drivers (e.g., litter chemistry and microbial activities) regulate the responses of litter decomposition to continuous N inputs. Based on an N-addition experimental platform, we...

Identification of species by combining molecular and morphological data using convolutional neural networks

Ai-Bing Zhang, Bing Yang, Zhenxin Zhang, Cai-Qing Yang, Ying Wang, Michael C. Orr & Hongbin Wang
Integrative taxonomy is central to modern taxonomy and systematic biology, including behavior, niche preference, distribution, morphological analysis, and DNA barcoding. However, decades of use demonstrate that these methods can face challenges when used in isolation, for instance, potential misidentifications due to phenotypic plasticity for morphological methods, and incorrect identifications because of introgression, incomplete lineage sorting, and horizontal gene transfer for DNA barcoding. Although researchers have advocated the use of integrative taxonomy, few detailed algorithms have...

Dashuan Tian, Yangzhou Xiang, Eric Seabloom, Han Chen, Jinsong Wang, Gui-Rui Yu, Ye Deng, Zhaolei Li & Shuli Niu
Ecological restoration is essential to reverse land degradation worldwide. Most studies have assessed the restoration of ecosystem functions individually, as opposed to a holistic view. Here we developed a network-based ecosystem multifunctionality (EMF) framework to identify key functions in evaluating EMF restoration. Through synthesizing 293 restoration studies (2900 observations) following cropland abandonment, we found that individual soil functions played different roles in determining the restoration of belowground EMF. Soil carbon, total nitrogen and phosphatase were...
