Human impact on the biogeochemical cycling of carbon between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere

Human impact on the biogeochemical cycling of carbon between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere

Ecological Bulletins Stockholm (35): 301-313

Research on the fluxes of CO2 in terrestrial ecosystems is reviewed. Replacement of virgin forests with intensively managed forests has increased the release of CO2 to the atmosphere. Utilization of logging slash as fuel has decreased the pool of soil organic carbon. Soil is probably one of the most significant sinks for organic carbon. Increased exploitation of peatlands and the burning of peat as fuel may also have significant effects on the carbon cycle.
