Author: Guo, Qinfeng; Ren, Hai;
Source: Global Ecology and Biogeography
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Little is known about the performance of plantations relative to natural forests of the same climate zone and age. China has more plantations than any other country as a consequence of massive afforestation efforts.We use data from China to comparatively examine tree biomass and productivity of planted and natural stands in relation to climate zone, latitude, elevation, age and species diversity (richness).
Keywords: Carbon sequestration, China, comparison, elevation, functions, latitude, plantations, restoration, species selection, succession
