Description 1 online resource
Contents Defining a Landscape-Scale Monitoring Tier for the North American Carbon Program; Study Site Characterization; Meteorological Measurements; Estimating Aboveground Carbon in Live and Standing Dead Trees; Measuring Carbon in Shrubs; Estimating the Carbon in Coarse Woody Debris with Perpendicular Distance Sampling; Measuring Litterfall and Branchfall; Methods for Estimating Litter Decomposition; Measuring the Decomposition of Down Dead-Wood; Measuring Forest Floor, Mineral Soil, and Root Carbon Stocks; Quantifying Soil Respiration at Landscape Scales
Summary This volume is a comprehensive guide to the methods and techniques employed in forest carbon inventory and monitoring. Since forest carbon research is interdisciplinary, it is unlikely that any one investigator will possess expertise in all of the types of measurements needed to conduct forest carbon research at scales larger than a forest stand. Techniques used to characterize standing stocks of carbon in a forest, measure key carbon fluxes, and collect related data (such as forest canopy nitrogen concentrations and meteorological measurements) that are required to drive process models, devel
