Soil Carbon and Nutrient Recovery after High-Severity Wildfire in Mexico
Pages: 45-61
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1103045

Fire severity can increase above historical levels due to factors such as human-derived fire suppression and climate change.  Studies about the effects of high-severity fires on soil carbon and nutrients in pine forest at tropical latitudes are still rare.  We analyzed the changes in carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) contents in the organic layer and the top mineral soil layer in a post-fire chronosequence of Pinus douglasiana Martínez-dominated forest stands in central-western Mexico 8 yr, 28 yr, and 60 yr following a high-severity fire.  [Read More]
