Title: Comparing soil carbon of short rotation poplar plantations with agricultural crops and woodlots in north central United States

Author: Coleman, Mark D.; Isebrands, J.G.; Tolsted, David N.; Tolbert, Virginia R.;

Date: 2004

Source: Environmental Management 33(1): S299-S308

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) has increased dramatically since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution as a result of human activities (Keeling and others 1995, Houghton and others 2001). The primary cause of CO2 increases are worldwide fossil fuel burning, biomass burning, and cement manufacturing. These activities are, in turn, tied to the expanding world population and a rising demand for energy. If the stead increase of CO2 continues, there may be profound effects on the environment and the world economy from a "greenhouse effect" that has led to global warming of the atmosphere (Houghton and others 2001).

Keywords: Carbon sequestration, hybrid poplar, switchgrass, soil bulk density, bioenergy, climate change
