Heat and drought impact on carbon exchange in an age‑sequence of temperate pine forests
Arain, M.A., Xu, B., Brodeur, J.J., Khomik, M., Peichl, M., Beamesderfer, E., Restrepo‑Coupe, N., Thorne, R.

Most North American temperate forests are plantation or regrowth forests, which are actively managed. These forests are in different stages of their growth cycles and their ability to sequester atmospheric carbon is affected by extreme weather events. In this study, the impact of heat and drought events on carbon sequestration in …

Response Of Soil Co2 Efflux To Shelterwood Harvesting In A Mature Temperate Pine Forest
Thorne, R., Khomik, M., Hayman, E., Arain, A.

In forest ecosystems, soil CO2 efflux is an important component of ecosystem respiration (RE), which is generally driven by variability in soil temperature and soil moisture. Tree harvesting in forests can alter the soil variables, and consequently impact soil CO2 efflux. This study investigated the response of total soil CO2 efflux, …
