Cover for The global challenge for soil carbon.

Soil carbon in the form of organic matter is a key component of the soil ecosystem structure. The soil carbon content is an important contributing factor in the many flows and transformations of matter, energy and biodiversity - the essential soil functions that provide ecosystem services and...

Cover for Soil carbon transition curves: reversal of land degradation through management of soil organic matter for multiple benefits.

Soils provide important ecosystem services at the local, landscape and global level. They provide the basis for crop, livestock and forestry production and help mitigate climate change by storing carbon. With expectations of a growing bioenergy supply to meet global energy demand added to the...

Cover for Assessment of organic carbon status in Indian soils.

Soil organic carbon (SOC) content in Indian soils has been reported as low, which is in tune with the fact that nearly 60% of the area in India represents the typical tropical climate, which does not permit SOC accumulation. Recent evaluation with the help of more soil and site data, model...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Climate change and soil carbon impacts.

Soils contain vast reserves (∼1500 Pg) of carbon (C), about twice that found as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Historically, soils in managed ecosystems have lost a portion of this C (40-90 Pg) through land-use change, some of which has remained in the atmosphere. In terms of climate change,...

Cover for Climate change mitigation.

Terrestrial ecosystems play a major role in regulating the concentrations of three greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4 and N2O), of which CO2 is the most important in terms of the impact on the global radiative balance. Soils play a major role in the global carbon (C) cycle and CO2 dynamics; thus,...

Cover for Managing soil organic carbon for multiple benefits: the case of Africa.

Organic matter is of great importance in soil, because it impacts on the physical, chemical and biological properties of soils. Physically, it promotes aggregate stability and therefore water infiltration, percolation and retention. Biologically, it stimulates the activity and diversity of...
