A survey of pyrogenic carbon in Kootenay National Park burned soils, and its positive effect on the establishment of pine-fungal ectomycorrhizal symbiosisDownload
Wildfire is a natural disturbance in Rocky Mountain forest landscapes. Fire plays an important role in maintaining stand structure, woody debris consumption, and soil nutrient cycling. Fire exclusion in these ecosystems has expanded forest cover, altered stand structures, and allowed...
The influences of fuel moisture and diameter on pyrogenic carbon production in fine woody debris from three boreal tree species under simulated surface fire conditions.Download
Wildland fires burn millions of hectares annually, releasing a significant amount of carbon into the atmosphere. Wildland fires also produce pyrogenic carbon – thermally-altered biomass that is highly resistant to decay – which accumulates in fire-affected ecosystems over time. Large wildfires,...
