Reviews and syntheses: Soil N2O and NO emissions from land use and land use change in the tropics and subtropics: a meta-analysis

Reviews and syntheses: Soil N2O and NO emissions from land use and land use change in the tropics and subtropics: a meta-analysis

Deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics may substantially alter soil N-oxide emissions. It is particularly relevant to accurately quantify those changes to properly account for them in a REDD+ climate change mitigation scheme that provides financial incentives to reduce the emissions. With this study we provide updated land use (LU)-based emission rates (103 studies, 387 N2O and 111 NO case studies), determine the trend and magnitude of flux changes with land-use change (LUC) using a meta-analysis approach (43 studies, 132 N2O and 37 NO cases) and evaluate biophysical drivers of N2O and NO emissions and emission changes for the tropics.
