Management Activities and Their Effects on Grassland Carbon Cycling

Figure 10.1

This figure appears in chapter 10 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.

Reduced fire frequency in mesic native grassland has allowed woody vegetation such as Juniperus virginia to expand and has been associated with rapid increases in carbon stocks in vegetation and soils (McKinley and Blair 2008). Other observed management impacts include lower carbon density in agricultural lands compared with grasslands (Zhu et al., 2011) and the rapid accumulation of soil carbon in intensively managed pastures in the southeastern United States (Machmuller et al., 2015). In addition, the rate of carbon uptake by croplands in the Great Plains is 30% lower than that of grasslands (Wylie et al., 2016).
