Prescribed burning is a forest management practice that is widely used in Australia to reduce the risk of damaging wildfires. Prescribed burning can affect both carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycling in the forest and thereby influence the soil-atmosphere...

Wildfires release substantial quantities of carbon (C) into the atmosphere but they also convert part of the burnt biomass into pyrogenic organic matter (PyOM). This is richer in C and, overall, more resistant to environmental degradation than the...

We characterized distributions of 23 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (S23PAH) and nine oxygenated PAHs (S9OPAH) in four remote forests. We observed highest S23PAH and S9OPAH concentrations in a coniferous forest in Florida, particularly in organic...
