Environmental relationships with the interannual and seasonal variation of soil respiration in a cedar (Platycladus orientalis) plantation in northern China
Abstract:The relationships between soil respiration and environmental factors determine the effect of warming soil on the carbon balance in temperate forest ecosystems and on changes in atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Here, we used 3 years of data regarding soil respiration rates (R s), soil temperature (T s), and soil volumetric water content () from a 50-year-old mature cedar (
