Title: Soil carbon in urban forest ecosystems

Author: Pouyat, Richard V.; Russell-Anelli, Jonathan; Yesilonis, Ian D.; Groffman, Peter M.

Date: 2003

Source: In: Kimble, J.M.; Heath, Linda S.; Birdsey, Richard A.; Lal, R., eds. The potential of U.S. forest soils to sequester carbon and mitigate the greenhouse effect. Boca Raton: CRC Press: 347-362.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In the contiguous 48 states of the United States, urban areas increased twofold between 1969 and 1994 and currently occupy 3.5% of the land, or 2.81 x 107 ha (Dwyer et al., 1998). On a global scale, more than 476,000 ha of arable land are converled annually to urban areas (World Resources Institute, 1996). This conversion has the potential to greatly modify soil organic carbon (SOC) pools on regional scales and to a lesser extent on a global scale (Pouyat et al., 2002).
