Title: Fact Sheet: Carbon Cycling in Southwestern Forests: Reservoirs, Fluxes, and the Effects of Fire and Management

Author: Swetnam, T.W., Falk, D.A.

Subject: Carbon Cycling

Abstract: Forest death from extreme drought and wildfires are reducing regional carbon reservoirs and overall forest sequestration capacity. At the same time, land use practices and development have increased the vulnerabil-ity of some forests during extreme droughts. The intent of this fact sheet is to explain the basics of the car-bon cycle in southwestern forests. It also summarizes how carbon cycling patterns are most likely to change in the coming years to decades in the Southwest.
