Global warming is likely to cause a decline in the number of species of microbes that live in tropical soils – and that could threaten the biodiversity of rainforests and increase carbon emissions. In a new study, scientists – led by…

What melting Tibetan glaciers reveal about disease and global warming – Eco-Business

“More research is needed for the identification of changes in microbial diversity in the different Himalayan regions. [It has been] established that unidentified microbial communities now predominate in the Indo-Tibetan region, northeast Himalayas and even in the western Himalayas (Ladakh),”…

Tropical soils may be deeply changed by global warming – Earth.com

Microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi play a fundamental role in the health of tropical forest ecosystems, by breaking down dead organic matter and either using the carbon it contains or releasing it into the environment as carbon dioxide. According…
