- ... Climate change factors such as elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2) and ozone (O 3) can exert significant impacts on soil microbes and the ecosystem level processes they mediate. However, the underlying mechanisms by which soil microbes respond to these environmental changes remain poorly understood. The prevailing hypothesis, which states that CO 2 - or O 3 -induced changes in carbon (C) av ...
