Short summary
Soil fungi could be the main source of N2O production potential in the Tibetan alpine grasslands. Warming and winter grazing may not affect the potential for soil N2O production potential, but climate warming can alter biotic pathways responsible for N2O production. These findings indicate that characterizing how fungal nitrification–denitrification contributes to N2O production, as well as how it responds to environmental and land use changes, can advance our understanding of N cycling.
