Nature article by YIBS affiliated faculty, Hutchinson postdoc, & colleagues

October 12, 2020

In a Nature article just published with their colleagues, YIBS Affiliated Faculty Peter Raymond (Professor of Ecosystem Ecology at Yale School of the Environment, or YSE) and YIBS Hutchinson Postdoctoral Fellow Taylor Maavara (also based at YSE) report findings from their study of nitrous oxide (N2O), a greenhouse gas.  Their team found that N2O emissions are rising at a “devastating” rate -- outpacing predictions made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  According to Maavara in an interview with YSE: “Nitrous oxide is often seen as the third most important greenhouse gas [behind carbon dioxide and methane]. Not as much attention is paid to nitrous oxide, but it’s extremely important.”
