Carbon dynamics in woody biomass of forest ecosystem in China with forest management practices under future climate change and rising CO2 concentration

It is critical to study how different forest management practices affect forest carbon sequestration under global climate change regime. Previous researches focused on the stand-level forest carbon

Significant Increase in Ecosystem C Can Be Achieved with Sustainable Forest Management in Subtropical Plantation Forests

It is shown how it is possible to increase and sustain carbon stored in subtropical forest plantations if management is switched towards more sustainable forestry and this C increase can be sustained in the long term through the maintenance of higher amounts of soil organic carbon and the production of timber products with longer life spans.

Optimal forest rotation periods: integrating timber production and carbon sequestration benefits in Pinus tabulaeformis plantations on the Loess Plateau, P.R. China

ABSTRACT Determining the optimal rotation period was a crucial component of forest sustainable management strategies, especially under climate change. This paper had two objectives: (1) to determine

Modelling the management of forest ecosystems: Importance of wood decomposition

Scarce and uncertain data on woody debris decomposition rates are available for calibrating forest ecosystem models, owing to the difficulty of their empirical estimations. Using field data from

Carbon Management in Tropical and Sub-Tropical Terrestrial Systems

Information on dynamics of soil organic carbon (SOC) in agricultural soils is gaining importance because of its impacts on climate change and benefits for crop productivity. Conservation agriculture,

Land Use Change Effects on Carbon and Nitrogen Stocks in the Pyrenees during the Last 150 Years: a Modelling Approach

In the southern Pyrenees, human population and therefore land uses have changed from forests to pastures, then crops, and back to pastures and secondary forests during the last two centuries. To



The legacy of forest management in tropical forests: analysis of its long-term influence with ecosystem models.

Forest management can modify key ecosystem attributes, affecting tree growth long after the end of forest management. Long-term influence of current management on forest recovery has been explored

Simulating the carbon storage of spruce forests based on the FORECAST model and remotely sensed data

Spruce (Picea asperata) is a special species of China, it is the main tree building species of high mountains in Sichuan, and plays an important role in the restoration of degraded ecosystems in
