Title: Postfire changes in forest carbon storage over a 300-year chronosequence of Pinus contorta-dominated forests

Author: Kashian, Daniel M.; Romme, William H.; Tinker, Daniel B.; Turner, Monica G.; Ryan, Michael G.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: A warming climate may increase the frequency and severity of stand-replacing wildfires, reducing carbon (C) storage in forest ecosystems. Understanding the variability of postfire C cycling on heterogeneous landscapes is critical for predicting changes in C storage with more frequent disturbance. We measured C pools and fluxes for 77 lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud var. latifolia Engelm.) stands in and around Yellowstone National Park (YNP) along a 300-year chronosequence to examine how quickly forest C pools recover after a stand-replacing fire, their variability through time across a complex landscape, and the role of stand structure in this variability.

Keywords: carbon, chronosequence, lodgepole pine, net ecosystem carbon balance, net ecosystem production, Pinus contorta var. latifolia, postfire succession, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
