Climate more important than soils for predicting forest biomass at the continental scale

Alison Bennett, Trent Penman, Stefan Arndt, Stephen Roxburgh & Lauren Bennett
Above-ground biomass in forests is critical to the global carbon cycle as it stores and sequesters carbon from the atmosphere. Climate change will disrupt the carbon cycle hence understanding how climate and other abiotic variables determine forest biomass at broad spatial scales is important for validating and constraining Earth System models and predicting the impacts of climate change on forest carbon stores. We examined the importance of climate and soil variables to explaining above-ground biomass...
