Co-editors-in-chief: Michael Bahn, Steven Bouillon, Katja Fennel, Anja Rammig & Tina Treude

Biogeosciences (BG) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications, and review papers on all aspects of the interactions between the biological, chemical, and physical processes in terrestrial or extraterrestrial life with the geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. The objective of the journal is to cut across the boundaries of established sciences and achieve an interdisciplinary view of these interactions. Experimental, conceptual, and modelling approaches are welcome.

22 Apr 2021 CO2 physiological effect can cause rainfall decrease as strong as large-scale deforestation in the Amazon

The impact of large-scale deforestation and the physiological effects of elevated atmospheric CO2 on Amazon rainfall are systematically compared in this study. The authors' results are remarkable in showing that the two disturbances cause equivalent rainfall decrease, though through different causal mechanisms.
