- 41 Downloads
This paper examined the carbon storage and flux of vegetation-litter-soil in alpine tundra ecosystems in Changbai Mountains. Approximately 17251 t·a−1 of carbon was yearly stored in the vegetation and 15043.1 t·a−1 of carbon flew into soil by litters. The vegetation-litter-soil ecosystem stored 452624 t·a−1 of carbon, which was the important CO2 sink. The net carbon storage was currently 3146 t·a−1 in vegetation-litter-soil ecosystem.
