Description: Managing forests for carbon benefits is a consideration for climate change, bioenergy, sustainability, and ecosystem services. A rapidly growing body of scientific literature on forest carbon management includes experimental, modeling, and synthesis approaches, at the stand- to landscape- to continental-level. We conducted a search of the scientific literature on the topic of managing forests for carbon, and compiled an annotated list of citations. We chose to focus specifically on studies that addressed carbon in aboveground carbon pools, at both the micro (tree, stand) and macro (landscape, policy) levels. Aboveground pools include: live tree, understory, standing dead wood, down dead wood, and forest floor. The temporal scope of the literature search was the period 2000-2008 and the geographical scope was the temperate and boreal forests mainly in the United States, but also Canada, Europe, Russia, Japan, China, New Zealand, and Australia.

Keywords: forest management, carbon sequestration, mitigation, climate change
