Spatial variation of soil respiration in a coastal protection forest in southeastern China

Spatial variation of soil respiration in a coastal protection forest in southeastern China −2 −1 Purpose Forest soil respiration is an important component of mean of R , M , T,and M were 1.194 μmol m s , s s-5 co2 −1 global carbon budgets, but its spatial variation is inadequately 11.387 mmol mol , 14.153 °C, and 407.716 ppm, respective- understood. This research aimed to measure soil respiration ly, in the forest; (2) the relationship between soil respiration (R ), soil water content (M ), soil temperature (T), and carbon and the other three factors was weak, while M , T,and M s s-5 s-5 co2 dioxide (M ) in a coastal protection forest (CPF), which is have strong relationships with each other; and (3) the four co2 one kind of man-made forests designed for coastal protection factors, especially soil respiration, had strong autocorrelation primarily along the coast in China, to determine the relation- within given limits and showed great heterogeneity with 95 % ships among them, and to analyze their spatial distributions in confidence intervals around the means in the study area, all of a small scale. which can provide important value for the study of carbon Materials and methods We measured R , M , T,and M of cycling Journal of Soils and Sediments Springer Journals
