Is soil carbon a useful indicator of sustainable forest soil management? - a case study from native eucalypt forests of south-eastern Australia.

Bauhus, Juergen; Khanna, Partap; Hopmans, Peter; Weston, Christopher

Description

The area and percent of forest land with significantly diminished soil organic matter (SOM) and/or changes in other soil chemical properties has been proposed as a regional sustainability indicator for Australia's forests. This study examined for native eucalypt forest in south-eastern Australia how representative soil organic carbon (SOC) is of important ecosystem properties and processes. In addition, it was investigated how sensitive the proposed indicator is to management-induced...[Show more]
