Tropical and subtropical China occupies a total area of about215 Mha, but the contents and storage of soil organic carbon (C)on this land have not been well studied. This research wasconducted in this concern by jointly using soil survey data andthe regional soil map. It was estimated that the 0–20 cm Cdensity of the soil subgroups in the region varied from 1.2 to9.7 kg C m-2. In the major zonal soils, soil subgroup`young ∼' had generally a C density about 1.2–4.4 timeslower than its other… CONTINUE READING
