Abstract

Previous chapters examined individual processes relevant to forest carbon cycling, and characterized measurement approaches for understanding those processes at landscape scales. In this final chapter, we address our overall approach to understanding forest carbon dynamics over large areas. Our objective is to identify any lessons that we learned in the course of measuring a wide range of carbon-related processes in a suite of forested sites. We focus on characterizing the costs and benefits of measuring individual processes and we examine the advantages and limitations to our plot layout. In addition, we draw upon the experience at individual sites to identify important lessons that may be specific to particular forest types or regions.
