Short summary
In the dry grassland investigated in this study the components of the soil CO2 efflux decreased at different rates under drought conditions. During drought the contribution made by the heterotrophic components was the highest and the rhizospheric component was the most sensitive to soil drying. According to our results, the heterotrophic component of soil respiration is the major contributor to the respiration activities during drought events.
In the dry grassland investigated in this study the components of the soil CO2 efflux decreased...
