AbstractIt's generally believed that elevated CO2 (eCO(2)) could stimulate plant growth and the ecosystem carbon (C) sink. However, great uncertainties exist in terms of the CO2 fertilization effect (CFE) magnitude, and how it is regulated by other global change factors. The lack of experimental evidence from the Alpine Region also limits our cognition on the CFE. By conducting a five-year manipulative field experiment in a semi-arid grassland of the Tibetan Plateau, we are aimed to explore the behavior of ecosystem C exchange in response to eCO(2) and N availability under contrasting natural precipitation regimes. The experiment showed that eCO(2) stimulated both gross ecosystem productivity (GEP) and ecosystem respiration (ER), and resulted in a neutral effect on net ecosystem productivity (NEP). The reduction of leaf N concentration under eCO(2) constrained the eCO(2) effects on C fluxes, especially on GEP and NEP. As N addition replenishes N availability in soil and leaf, GEP benefited more from the N addition than the ER. The eCO(2) strengthened the C sink when exogenous N was added simultaneously. Furthermore, precipitation variability played an importance role in mediating the eCO(2) effect among growing seasons. The eCO(2) effects on C fluxes tended to decline with increased water availability. The CFE was suppressed with excessive precipitation when the water-use efficiency (WUE) response was weak and eCO(2)-induced water-saving disappeared. The negative impact of precipitation on the CFE may also be attributed to the short precipitation intervals and insufficient radiation caused by high-frequency precipitation. Our study demonstrates that eCO(2) only stimulates net C uptake under conditions of N addition or during drier periods. Given the widespread N limitation, the efficacy of terrestrial ecosystems in mitigating climate change under rising CO2 may be weaker than projected and is closely related to the precipitation variability.
