Belowground ecosystems have been poorly studied in world forests. It is necessary to understand this complex portion of the ecosystem, which directly receives up to 50 % of a tree’s fixed carbon. The proposed study will focus on the belowground ecosystem of Douglas-fir forests and how it is affected by paper birch over an 80 year period using a chronosequence approach. The deliverables include: final selection of study sites; layout of sampling plots; identification of vegetation from these plots; installation of root windows on a portion of these plots; training of a graduate student and a thesis proposal. All these deliverables were completed.
