Modeling in-situ pine root decomposition using data from a 60-year chronosequence

Abstract

Because the root system of a mature pine tree typically accounts for 20-30s of the total tree biomass, decomposition of large lateral roots and taproots foliowin, 0 forest harvest and re-establishment potentially impact nutrient supply and carbon sequestration in pine systems over several decades. If the relationship between stump diameter and decomposition… (More)
