Effects of Land-Use Change on Carbon Stocks in Switzerland

  title={Effects of Land-Use Change on Carbon Stocks in Switzerland},
  author={Janine Bolliger and Frank Hagedorn and J Leifeld and J{\"u}rgen B{\"o}hl and Stephan Zimmermann and Reto Soliva and Felix Kienast},
We assessed how consequences of future land-use change may affect size and spatial shifts of C stocks under three potential trends in policy—(a) business-as-usual: continuation of land-use trends observed during the past 15 years; (b) extensification: full extensification of open-land; and (c) liberalization: full reforestation potential. The build-up times for the three scenarios are estimated at 30, 80 and 100 years, respectively. Potential C-stock change rates are derived from the literature… CONTINUE READING
