Tundra ecosystems are known to be strongly patterned. Understanding how these patterns control carbon and nutrient fluxes is critical to successfully modeling changes in the tundra ecosystems. The hypothesis is that the geospatial relationship between soil carbon and nitrogen cycling with community composition controls ecosystem response to global warming. To answer this, the links between various...
