About this book

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. Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems provides the information on processes, factors and causes influencing carbon sequestration in forest ecosystems. Drawing upon most up-to-date references, Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems summarizes the current understanding of carbon sequestration processes in forest ecosystems while identifying knowledge gaps for future research, Thus, Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems is a valuable knowledge source for students, scientists, forest managers and policy makers.

Media reviews

"This book is the first to synthesize information on relevant processes, factors, and causes of C turnover in forest ecosystems and the technical and economic potential of C sequestration. Accordingly, the authors are able to fill an important gap between the needs of global environmental policy and local forest management. [...] topics and structure of this book is highly meritorious. It will perform a significant task in academic teaching [...] also in stimulating the dialog between different groups in policy, science, and practical land management!"
- K. H. Feger, Journal of Plant Nutrition and Soil Science, Vol. 173 (2), April, 2010

"Lorenz and Lal (both, Ohio State) developed this timely work to illustrate the science of the carbon cycle [...] and resource limitations on carbon sequestration. [...] At the end of each chapter, the authors summarize the topic and provide a list of review questions. Twenty color plates [...] provide visual understanding of selected issues. A valuable resource for readers seeking fundamental knowledge and guidance in managing forests for carbon sequestration. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty, forest managers, and policy makers."
- J. Chen, Choice, Vol. 47 (11), August, 2010
