Microbiome engineering has large potential for sustainable agriculture. Here we demonstrate that field inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can promote crop yield and inoculations success can be predicted using soil microbiome indicators.
Woolly rhinoceros is one of the most popular species of the Ice Age, which has been attracting great interests from both the scientific community and the public. In recent years, technical advances in ancient DNA have provided powerful tools for exploring the evolution of this extinct star species.
The influence of ENSO on the seasonal mean East Asian winter monsoon has been well established. Our recent study detects a robust subseasonal variability embedded in the response of the East Asian winter climate to ENSO, characterized by a pronounced collapse of the ENSO effect in midwinter.
