From the Conclusions (p.255) ... 'There is a great deal of variability in carbon storage of Asia Russian, depending on the geographic region, forest type, and history of disturbance. These factors affect the forest composition and stand age structure, both strong determinants of carbon storage. The forests of Asian Russia, with their large proportion of the world's stock of carbon, in the future can be either a source or sink of atmospheric CO2, depending on forest harvesting and forest management activity and natural factors such as fire frequency and insect outbreaks.' © 2000 Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.
