Fire plays an important role in Brazilian tropical savannas, affecting both above- and belowground biomass and carbon stocks. In this study we analysed the biomass and carbon dynamics from both above-, and belowground according to different fire histories and season. Our results showed that these grasslands can store a large amount of carbon belowground and the longer the interval of fire, the higher the amount of dead biomass accumulated due to the low decomposition rates
