Title: Effects of forest regrowth and urbanization on ecosystem carbon storage in a rural–urban gradient in the Southeastern United States

Author: Zhang, Chi; Tian, Hanqin; Pan, Shufen; Liu, Mingliang; Lockaby, Graeme; Schilling, Erik B.; Stanturf, John;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

Forest regrowth after cropland abandonment and urban sprawl are two counteracting processes that have influenced carbon (C) sequestration in the southeastern United States in recent decades. In this study, we examined patterns of land-use/landcover change and their effect on ecosystem C storage in three west Georgia counties (Muscogee, Harris, and Meriwether) that form a rural–urban gradient.
