陆地生态系统在气候系统和PG电子官网碳循环中发挥着重要作用. 例如, 陆地植被作为碳汇,吸收了高达15-30%的人为CO2 通过光合作用的排放. 这种吸收调节CO的积聚2 在大气中, 这反过来又会影响PG电子官网变暖和相关气候变化的程度.

然而, 气候 change and anthropogenic activities are threatening the role of terrestrial vegetation to act as carbon sink. 几个因素(e.g. CO2 受精, 气候, 氮沉降, 土地利用和土地覆被变化, 极端气候事件等.) have been identified as key variables that influence the ability of terrestrial ecosystems to act as carbon sink.

然而, there is currently uncertainty on the response of terrestrial ecosystem carbon sinks to the dynamics of these drivers. Identifying factors that affect the capacity of the terrestrial vegetation to absorb carbon and quantifying the magnitude of their sensitivity to driving factors is important in accurately projecting future coupled carbon cycle and 气候 system.

因此, this study aims to quantify the dynamics of tropical forest carbon sinks and their response and sensitivity to various environmental drivers.
