  • Describes basic processes of C dynamics in forest ecosystems
  • Discusses effects of abrupt climate change on C sequestration in forest ecosystems
  • Provides information on processes, factors and causes influencing C sequestration in forest ecosystems
  • Compares C dynamics and sequestration in major global forest biomes
  • Gives an outlook on the future role of forest ecosystems in global C cycle

Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems is a comprehensive book describing the basic processes of carbon dynamics in forest ecosystems, their contribution to carbon sequestration and implications for mitigating abrupt climate change. This book provides the information on processes, factors and causes influencing carbon sequestration in forest ecosystems. Drawing upon most up-to-date references, this book summarizes the current understanding of carbon sequestration processes in forest ecosystems while identifying knowledge gaps for future research, Thus, this book is a valuable knowledge source for students, scientists, forest managers and policy makers.
