SP 4 - Carbon stocks, turnover and nutrient budgets in soil along land-use and climatic gradients

This subproject will provide together with our Brazilian counterpart subprojects information about the soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks, as well as the quality and function of SOM, how these parameters are influenced by land use and under changing climate and, finally, identify what innovative management tools can be used to increase C storage in stable SOM pools and to improve SOM and soil quality.
