Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from soil, foliage, and live woody tissue were measured throughout the year in afforested, white pine (Pinus strobus L.) stands (67, 32, 17, and 4 years old as of 2006), growing in a northern temperate climate. The data were used to estimate annual ecosystem respiration (Re) and its component fluxes, including… More

The allometry and partitioning of above- and belowground tree biomass was studied in an age-sequence of four eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) forests (2-, 15-, 30-, and 65-year-old) in southern Ontario, Canada. Biomass in each tree component, i.e. foliage, branch (live and dead), bark, stem and root was quantified by destructive tree harvesting. Allometric… More

We present four years (2005–2008) of biometric (B) and eddy-covariance (EC) measurements of carbon (C) fluxes to constrain estimates of gross primary production (GPP), net primary production (NPP), ecosystem respiration (RE) and net ecosystem production (NEP) in an age-sequence (6-, 19-, 34-, and 69-years-old in 2008) of pine forests in southern Ontario, Canada. The contribution… More
