Comment on “Mycorrhizal association as a primary control of the CO 2 fertilization effect”
Terrer et al. (Reports, 1 July 2016, p. 72) used meta-analysis of CO 2 enrichment experiments as evidence of an interaction between mycorrhizal symbiosis and soil nitrogen availability. The comment presented here challenges their database and biomass as the response metric, and hence their recommendation that incorporation of mycorrhizae in models will improve predictions of terrestrial ecosystem responses to increasing atmospheric CO 2.
