Controls of temperature and moisture on root decomposition have not been well studied despite their direct relevance to climate change impacts on root carbon flux. The main objective of this laboratory study was to examine the respiration response of Sitka spruce, Douglas-fir, western hemlock, ponderosa pine, and lodgepole pine decomposing roots (1‐3 cm in diameter) to temperature and moisture change. Roots of Sitka spruce, Douglas-fir and western hemlock, and ponderosa pine and lodgepole pine… CONTINUE READING
