Determined the contribution of root derived CO2 efflux to total CO2 efflux (including root and non-root derived CO2 efflux) is import to grope the mechanism of CO2 efflux, however, becaused of ‘rhizoshere priming effect’ (RPE), it is difficult to achieve in practice. In this study, we attempted to estimate the RPE via comparing basal soil respiration (R b) achieved by two different methods namely, y-intercept regression and direct bare plot approach in an arid cotton field, central Asia. On the basis of the y-intercept of linear regressions between below-ground respiration (BGR) and root biomass, R b was indirectly calculated. Comparing with the first approach, the second approach involved direct measurements of soil respiration from bare plots. R b estimated by y-intercept method contained the component of RPE whereas direct bare plot did not. We found that RPE showed a phenological trend with highest value in flowering stage at 0.145 g CO2 m–2 h–1 and lowest at budding stage (0.007 g CO2 m–2 s–1), even after the data had been corrected for the influence of soil temperature. We concluded that RPE needed to be considered when R b was estimated by y-intercept approach.
