Effect of understory on a natural secondary forest ecosystem carbon budget

Effect of understory on a natural secondary forest ecosystem carbon budget Lacking of detail data, forest carbon stock estimation with forest inventory data usually excludes or underestimates understory carbon storage. To quantify the effects of understory on carbon sequestration in a natural secondary Pinus tabulaeformis forest, organ biomass models for arbor, shrub to their growth indices were regressed. Biomass of herbage was estimated in a stratified sampling method. Soil respiration in forest land was measured. Based on above data, carbon budget of Pinus tabulaeformis forest was assessed as 1.882 CO2 Mghm−2year−1, 37.04% of the entire vegetation’s yearly net carbon storage belonging to understory. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Ecology Springer Journals

Abstract

Lacking of detail data, forest carbon stock estimation with forest inventory data usually excludes or underestimates understory carbon storage. To quantify the effects of understory on carbon sequestration in a natural secondary Pinus tabulaeformis forest, organ biomass models for arbor, shrub to their growth indices were regressed. Biomass of herbage was estimated in a stratified sampling method. Soil respiration in forest land was measured. Based on above data, carbon budget of Pinus tabulaeformis forest was assessed as 1.882 CO2 Mghm−2year−1, 37.04% of the entire vegetation’s yearly net carbon storage belonging to understory.
