Accurate estimates of tree carbon, forest fl oor carbon and organic carbon in forest soils (SOC) are important in order to determine their contribution to global carbon (C) stocks. However, information about these carbon stocks is lacking. Some studies have investigated regional and continental scale patterns of carbon stocks in forest ecosystems; however, the changes in C storage in different components (vegetation, forest fl oor and soil) as a function of elevation in forest ecosystems remain… CONTINUE READING
