Short summary
Since the 20th century, human beings have released a large amount of reactive nitrogen by excessive application of nitrogen fertilizer, which resulted in enhanced greenhouse effect. It is not clear how the ecosystem nitrogen cycle evolves during global warming. In this study, we collected global data and used meta-analysis to reveal the response of nitrogen cycle to climate warming. The results show that the future climate warming can accelerate the process of ecosystem nitrogen cycle.
