New article states: Loss of plant biodiversity can reduce soil carbon sequestration in grasslands
COAT is part of Nutrient Network, a worldwide network of research stations linked to grasslands. We have our "stations" on the Varanger peninsula and have contributed to a publication in Nature Communications.

Compared to grasslands globally, our grasslands have both a high diversity of plants and a relatively large carbon store.
