Turkey Lakes tree harvesting impacts project: chapter 10

Forest Productivity

Net primary production (NPP) is a measure of net carbon assimilated per area over a certain time period. In this study we are investigating NPP recovery and reallocation as affected by the four harvest treatments.

Breakdown of NPP at Turkey Lakes Watershed:

Woody tissues (tree growth on permanent sample plots) 21%
Leaves, flowers, fruit, and bark (annual litter fall collection) 34%
Fine roots (studies of fine root production and turnover) 45%
