The spatial and temporal dynamics of soil temperature (TSOIL) strongly influence a wide range of biotic and abiotic processes in boreal forests. Relatively few spatial and temporal TSOIL measurements have been made in these systems; in addition, not all ecosystem models take into account the effect of changing stand structure during stand development on TSOIL… More

The objective of this study was to quantify carbon (C) distribution for boreal black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) stands comprising a fire chronosequence in northern Manitoba, Canada. The experimental design included seven well-drained (dry) and seven poorly-drained (wet) stands that burned between 1998 and 1850. Vegetation C pools (above-ground + below-ground) steadily increased from 1.3 to… More
