Microorganisms Account for Most of Carbon Circulating in Amazonian Waters

Publicado em 11 abril 2019
New insights into the carbon cycle of Amazonia's lakes, floodplains and waters have furthered the understanding of the scale and consequences of global warming. The research, published in Hydrobiologia, revealed that the microbial food chain found in floodplains produces 10 times more carbon dioxide than the classical phytoplankton-zooplankton-fish food chain made up of decomposing organic matter. Carbon is one of one of the most abundant elements found on Earth. Most of the carbon on this [...]
