Carbon cycling

by Marie Spohn

Carbon that is taken up by plants with the power of the sun is moved to the roots. This process that usually stays obscure to us has been made visible with a non-stable carbon isotope. The activity of the isotope is transformed into light flashes that can be detected, and allow us to gain insights into carbon cycling. I find it fascinating to see how cycling of elements connects above- and belowground ecosystems.
