Estimating carbon pool in the phytomass of larch forests in Northern Eurasia

Estimating carbon pool in the phytomass of larch forests in Northern Eurasia

Ekologiya (Moscow) (4): 258-266, July-August

Based on 60 scientific literature sources, a database was created on the phytomass of larch (Larix) forests from 360 locations in territories from England to Japan, for which the carbon transfer coefficients were calculated. A carbon transfer coefficient is the ratio of the carbon mass in the trunk, roots, branches, coniferous needles, and lower layers to the supply of trunk wood. Systems of recursive equations were elaborated for the mass-forming indices and for the carbon transfer coefficients. These systems were combined into a second-level recursion system, and they were differentiated according to 21 regions (formations) of Northern Eurasia. For each area, the indices of the organic carbon supply in the fractions of phytomass were given.
