The aim of this project was to assess the development of the carbon budget and the dynamics of carbon sequestration of the European part of the Russian forests in the future, during the next 100 years. It is likely that carbon stocks and sequestration are changing already under the current climate and management regimes. Changes in the soil carbon stock are likely to have substantial influence on the forest carbon balance. Changes in fire frequency, insect outbreaks and forest management will also affect the carbon stocks and the sequestration.
