Version of Record online: 11 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2012GB004536

Key Points

  • Estimated root contribution to C budget of Canada's 2.3 × 106 km2 managed forests
  • Varying root turnover rates and recalcitrant % had small impacts on NPP and NEP
  • NPP was 809 Tg C yr−1 with root growth and maintenance contributing 39.8%
