Access from EThOS:
Northern temperate forests have been identified as major contributors 10 the terrestrial C sink. Among the different land uses, afforestation and reforestation have been recommended as practices to mitigate climate change by promoting C storage in both soils and biomass but the main factors affecting long-term C stabilization in soils remain uncertain. This research investigated how different soil types and tree species affect the C sequestration potential of forest soils with respect to soil C quality and how soil properties and the activities of key enzymes may influence soil carbon transformation processes in topsoil (A and E) and subsoil (B) horizons.
