Climate Change Impacts on Future Carbon Stores and Management of Warm Deserts of the United States
DescriptionReducing atmospheric CO2 through enhanced terrestrial carbon storage may help slow or reverse the rate of global climate change. However, information on how climate change in the Southwest might affect the balance between CO2 uptake and loss on semiarid rangelands is not easily accessible to land managers.
