404 Soil Responses to and Ecosystem Services Provided by Forest, Range and Wildland Soil Management: II

Oral Session
S07 Forest, Range & Wildland Soils Forests, ranges, and even wildlands are commonly managed (including no action, a viable management choice) to provide a host of ecosystem services, such as abundant and clean water, diverse fauna and flora, carbon sequestration, and commercial food, fiber, and biomass. This session will feature presentations on the influence of management actions on how soil functions to provide these benefits as well as how soil reacts to management actions.
