Carbon cycling changes during regeneration of a deciduous broadleaf forest after clear cutting i. changes in organic matter and carbon storage



Carbon cycling changes during regeneration of a deciduous broadleaf forest after clear cutting i. changes in organic matter and carbon storage



Japanese Journal of Ecology 35(5): 551-563



Plant biomass, litter accumulation, and soil carbon storage were measured in four different-aged deciduous broadleaf forests (P1-P4) that had been clear-cut and in a mature forest (P5). Plant biomass increased as forest age increased, and leaf and fine-root biomass were almost constant. Accumulation of dead plant parts decreased at first and then gradually increased. Recovery of fine-litter accumulation was observed at an early stage of regeneration. Carbon accumulation in the soil decreased remarkably in the first 40 years and then gradually increased. Total carbon accumulation was 202 tC/ha in P1 (12 years old), 180 tC/ha in P2 (45 years old), and 323 tC/ha in P5 (mature). The forest ecosystem changed from a CO2 source to a CO2 sink, relative to the atmosphere, fairly early in the regeneration.
