Sisältö 

A workshop for expert presentations and discussions on belowground carbon sinks in arctic and boreal soils as well as impacts of global warming and landuse changes on them. Belowground carbon sinks of boreal forests are currently ignored in the political discussion of sustainable forestry and the annual amount of harvested timber volume. Moreover, participation of soil microbial communities in forming the soil carbon sinks are generally underestimated. The topic is crucial in terms of global climate change, and the aim is to bring together top scientists in this field to interact and deepen the understanding of the topic, especially among the PhD students in plant and soil ecology, microbial ecology, geography and related fields. The course will also benefit the students by providing them knowledge of up-to-date methodology on estimating plant and microbial carbon sinks belowground. Meeting the researchers in the fields of plant ecology, forest ecology, microbial ecology and geoinformatics from different universities will benefit the PhD students in their studies, and by active networking with senior and younger participants also during their future careers.
