In this study we analyzed forest carbon models that use growth yield curve: CBM-CFS3, CO2FIX, CASMOFOR, and EFISCEN. Relatively speaking, CBM-CFS3 is expected to give high accuracy in the estimation of forest carbon with diverse inputs and detailed compartments in biomass pools and dead organic matter pools, and handle C dynamics which is related to disturbance and land-use changes deeply in both small-scale and large-scale forests. CO2FIX has various extended modules based on a cohort approach… 

Spatiotemporal dynamics of forest ecosystem carbon budget in Guizhou: customisation and application of the CBM-CFS3 model for China

Background Countries seeking to mitigate climate change through forests require suitable modelling approaches to predict carbon (C) budget dynamics in forests and their responses to disturbance and

Two large-scale forest scenario modelling approaches for reporting CO2 removal: a comparison for the Romanian forests

This model comparison provided valuable insights on both the conceptual and modelling algorithms, as well as how the quality of the input data may affect calibration and projections of the stock and stock change in the living biomass pool.

The effect of harvesting on national forest carbon sinks up to 2050 simulated by the CBM-CFS3 model: a case study from Slovenia

Estimating Carbon Dynamics in an Intact Lowland Mixed Dipterocarp Forest Using a Forest Carbon Model

Intact dipterocarp forests in Asia act as crucial carbon (C) reservoirs, and it is therefore important to investigate the C dynamics in these forests. We estimated C dynamics, together with net

Estimating the age-dependent changes in carbon stocks of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands in Turkey

Abstract• Key messageSimulated and observed carbon stocks in Scots pine forests varied considerably with stand age. The contribution of biomass to the total forest carbon stocks increased and that of

Coarse woody debris respiration of Japanese red pine forests in Korea: controlling factors and contribution to the ecosystem carbon cycle

Coarse woody debris (CWD) respiration (RCWD) has strengths in efficient investigation of CWD decomposition rate and application into studies on ecosystem carbon (C) processes. Here, RCWD was

Belowground biomass dynamics in the Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector: recent improvements and implications for the estimation of NPP and NEP

The objectives of this study were to update the compilation of root biomass and turnover data, to recalculate the regression equations and to evaluate the impact of the new equations on CBM-CFS2 estimates of net primary production (NPP) and net ecosystemProduction (NEP).


The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector (CBM–CFS2) is a framework for the dynamic accounting of carbon pools and fluxes in Canada’s forest ecosystems and the forest product sector. The

Retrospective assessment of carbon flows in Canadian boreal forests

The Canadian boreal forest is comprised largely of even-aged stands that for millennia have undergone cycles of disturbance (i.e., fires or insect-induced stand mortality) and regrowth. Previous
