In simple terms: Post fire litters are richer in water soluble carbon and lead to increased microbial activity

Abstract: Under conditions of increased fire season length and area affected by fire, stocks of carbon stored in forests are at increased risk of burning. While much research has investigated the immediate loss of above ground and below ground carbon stocks through combustion during a fire, there has been little research on subsequent organic matter …
