The overall goal of this study was to examine the spatial and temporal patterns of C storage from 1992 to 2002 in forest ecosystems in Guangdong, China. We used 2237, 2103, and 1978 plot data from three continuous forest inventory in 1992, 1997, and 2002, respectively, four TM images and one soil survey data in Guangdong to examine the spatial and temporal(More)
Bamboo forests provide important ecosystem services and play an important role in terrestrial carbon cycling. Of the approximately 500 bamboo species in China, Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens) is the most important one in terms of distribution, timber value, and other economic values. In this study, we estimated current and potential carbon stocks in(More)
Numerical models are the most appropriate instrument for the analysis of the carbon balance of terrestrial ecosystems and their interactions with changing environmental conditions. The process-based model BIOME-BGC is widely used in simulation of carbon balance within vegetation, litter and soil of unmanaged ecosystems. For Moso bamboo forests, however,(More)
The selective cutting method currently used in Moso bamboo forests has resulted in a reduction of stand productivity and carbon sequestration capacity. Given the time and labor expense involved in addressing this problem manually, simulation using an ecosystem model is the most suitable approach. The BIOME-BGC model was improved to suit managed Moso bamboo(More)
Soil respiration inherently shows strong spatial variability. It is difficult to obtain an accurate characterization of soil respiration with an insufficient number of monitoring points. However, it is expensive and cumbersome to deploy many sensors. To solve this problem, we proposed employing the Bayesian Maximum Entropy (BME) algorithm, using soil(More)
Drought decreased the optimal temperature for photosynthesis and significantly reduced carbon fixation of Moso bamboo forest. VPD is a superior indicator for simulating the response of GPP to drought. The severity and frequency of drought in the subtropics and tropical marginal convective zones are increasing and consequently greater attention is being(More)
