Abstract
Forest management practices which optimize forest structure and tree growth change soil environmental conditions, favoring the decomposition of carbon (C), making the stock C decreases. However, many aspects remain to be clarified on the mechanisms and processes involved in C sequestration capacity of forest soils, as the effects of tree species on soil C stock or stability of soil organic matter. In a global change perspective, the potential mitigation role of forest ecosystems is a criterion to be considered by forest managers. We worked on the hypothesis that both different forest management practices and forest age influence both soil CO2 emissions and stocks, as a result of the different C inputs to the soil (from aboveground litter and rhizodeposition) and the different meteorological conditions (i.e. soil temperature and soil moisture) under each forest type.
