Montane forests are characterized by high biodiversity, endemism and strong elevational environmental gradients. The latter attribute makes them also suitable as a ‘natural laboratory’ for studying the effects of environmental parameters on ecosystem functions. To provide better insight into the carbon cycle of Afromontane ecosystems, we used an elevational gradient approach to quantify carbon stocks, woody and litter productivity, and their constraining factors. Twenty plots were established, covering five elevations from Kibale Forest at 1250...
