MEG- ES- L11

At the Model the value of the carbon in living biomass gets down at the 1990th. At the IPCC report the global values differs very strong, so there is no exact value.

 

I would compare the change in landuse to the deforestation at the model, forest regrowth in temperate and boreal zone to the afforestation, vulcanic activity and other geological processes to rock decomposition,  higher temperatures in boreal regions will increase fire frequency to loss from fires at the model.

In the following graphic one can see the storey structure of the forest (grey = singlestorey, purple = multistorey)

The second graphic show the distribution of the trees, calculated with R. Negative values (here not existing) indicate that the distribution is normal, “0″ indicates a random distribution and positive numbers are indicators for a clustered distribution.
