The AA. chose 7 typical land use types including natural forest, plantations (timber and economic forest), orchard and arable land, which had homogeneous substrate and clear land use history records, to compare their impacts on soil organic carbon (SOC) and light-fraction organic carbon (LFOC). The specific aims of this study were to examine : 1) How SOC and LFOC response to native forest conversions in mid-subtropical mountainous area of China ? 2) Do SOC and LFOC in surface and subsurface soil layer response similarly to native forest conversions ? 3) Would differences in site climate and managements result in different SOC stocks and quality during the native forest conversions ? These results will be useful for establishing appropriate and sustainable soil management practices
