Tundra

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Tundra ecosystems are dense in carbon. They have little potential to gain more carbon but a huge amount could be lost if the permafrost were to thaw. Prevention of climate change is currently the only failsafe method of minimising this loss.
