Rapid accumulation and turnover of soil carbon in a re-establishing forest
Present understanding of the global carbon cycle is limited by uncertainty over soil-carbon dynamics,,,,,. The clearing of the world's forests, mainly for agricultural uses, releases large amounts ofExpand

Simulating trends in soil organic carbon in long-term experiments using RothC-26.3
Abstract As part of a model evaluation exercise, RothC-26.3, a model for the turnover of organic carbon in non-waterlogged soils, was fitted to measurements of organic carbon from 18 differentExpand

Soil Chemistry in a Loblolly/Longleaf Pine Forest with Interval Burning.
We examined the 30-yr cumulative effects of prescribed fires at intervals of 1, 2, 3, and 4 yr in a loblolly and longleaf pine forest in the Coastal Plain of South Carolina. The fine fraction of theExpand

The nitrogen budget of a pine forest under free air CO2 enrichment
Abstract. Elevated concentrations of atmospheric CO2 increase plant biomass, net primary production (NPP) and plant demand for nitrogen (N). The demand for N set by rapid plant growth under elevatedExpand

Productivity, aboveground biomass, nutrient uptake and carbon content in fast-growing tree plantations of native and introduced species in the Southern Region of Costa Rica
Early growth performance of four native and two introduced tree species was studied during six years at 13 sites in the southern region of Costa Rica. Selected study sites represent a wideExpand
