Peatlands store twice as much carbon as all the biomass of the World’s forests. Vast areas of peatland have been drained and turned into CO2 sources. Their rewetting is essential to reduce CO2 emissions. But how exactly do the rewetted peatlands look like, do they resemble again the natural state?
How the regional tectonics influence the biosphere in deep time? We discuss the development of the well-known Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota, and suggest its the spatio-temporal evolutioncoincides with the initial and peak stages of the North China craton (NCC) destruction in the Early Cretaceous.
Plants and soil organisms are tightly linked. In fact, plant species leave distinct local legacies in the soil and its microbiome. It was unknown how long these legacies persist, and what happens to it when new plants colonize soil with a legacy. In our new study, we tried to answer these questions.

Register to Nature Portfolio Ecology & Evolution Community
The Nature Portfolio Ecology & Evolution Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of news and opinion in ecology and evolutionary biology. Through posts, discussion, image and video content, the community space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about topics ranging from the fundamental science itself through to policy, society and the day to day life of the research community. It is also a place to learn more about the activities of Nature Research ecology and evolutionary biology editors and the policies and practices of our journals.
