Seasonal soil carbon, nitrogen and greenhouse gas emissions during post beetle forest successional recovery
Bark beetle infestation has occurred in many forested areas all across North America. Delayed effects of the infestation on the forest ecosystem and on factors related to climate change can continue to occur years after infestation. This research was conducted June 2015 to November 2015 at a site in the Snowy Range Mountains in southern Wyoming. As an observational project of the post-infestation effects on a slope in a mountainous forest, this research is specifically looking at the change of the forest floor's gas emissions, inorganic Nitrogen and Carbon, microbial nitrogen uptake, and soil ...
