tdSoil organic carbon (SOC) is integral to soil functioning and serves as a common indicator for soil security, water security, food security, energy security, climate change abatement, biodiversity protection, and ecosystem service. Since SOC varies in space and time, its quantification is essential to better understand the carbon (C) dynamics at various scales. As a gamut of montane ecosystems, the Himalayan region serves as one of the major C storage pools in the world due to its rich biodiversity and good forest cover. However, much of the Himalayan region is environmentally vulnerable because of rapid socio-economic development taking place, unsustainable land…Click on the link below to read more…soil-organic-carbon-variability-under-montane-ecosystems
