    Description

    Dead wood (DW) plays a critical role not only in maintaining biodiversity but also in stocking carbon under UNFCCC. From the 5th national forest inventory (NFI5; 2006-2010) in South Korea, field data relevant to the DW including standing and downed dead trees by four decay class, etc. were collected. Based on the NFI5 data, the average volume of DW over the country is estimated to be 12.3m3/ha of which the total carbon stock accounts for 10.9 Tg C. Recently, NFI6 (2011-2015) has been implemented into monitoring and assessing forest resources including DW over time. We are to analyze relationship between DW and stand structure for sustainable forest management.
