Title:
Analysing regional-scale patterns of C3 and C4 vegetation in the Inner Mongolia steppe through grazer wool carbon isotope composition.

Abstract:
The Eurasian steppe is the world’s largest contiguous terrestrial biome. Its vegetation is mainly composed of herbaceous species applying either C3 or C4 photosynthesis. The spatial pattern of C3/C4 contributions to aboveground biomass and its variation over time can be estimated from the carbon isotope composition of wool samples. This method exploits the fact that grazers’ foraging activity integrates over their grazing grounds and wool isotope composition integrates over the...    »
