Abstract:Climate change and shrub encroachment affect nematode biodiversity,
although shrub species had different effects on below-ground community.
Yet, the consequences of shrub species on the nematode beta diversity
under future climate change scenarios remain insufficiently explored.
Here, we studied the dominant shrub effects on the beta diversity of
soil nematode communities along climate gradients on the Qinghai-Tibet
Plateau. We investigated soil nematode communities in 31 sites of alpine
meadow ecosystems acro… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
