Recently, scientists from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) conducted a two-year continuous in-situ measurement at an alpine meadow permafrost ecosystem in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
Recently, researchers led by Prof. WANG Peng from the Institute of Applied Ecology conducted a series of experiments by employing a 13C natural abundance approach with tree seedlings and soils, with aims to investigate how carbon allocation to and functional traits of absorptive roots influence the rhizosphere priming effect.
Recently, scientists from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) assessed the Noah‐MP model for simulating soil hydrothermal dynamics at two typical permafrost sites with different underlying surfaces (the Tanggula site, alpine meadow; the Beiluhe site, alpine swamp) of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
Recently, a research group led by Prof. KANG Shichang from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER), together with researchers from other universities and research institutes, reviewed the current status of knowledge on microplastics in freshwater sediments, including methods for sample collection, analysis and detection.
Researchers led by Prof. ZHANG Xudong and Prof. HE Hongbo from the Institute of Applied Ecology conducted a simulated microcosm amendment with weekly addition of 13C-glucose and microbial utilization of the extraneous carbon was identified with the approaches of nucleic acid stable isotope probing and high-throughput pyrosequencing techniques.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. KANG Shichang from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER), in cooperation with scientists at home and broad, has investigated the formation mechanisms and sources of atmospheric nitrate in the Mt. Everest region by applying an isotopic method for the first time.
