Using mid-infrared spectroscopy (MIR) and partial least-squares (PLS) analysis in conjunction with ultraviolet photo-oxidation followed by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (UV-NMR) techniques, pyrogenic carbon (PyC) contents were quantified for samples from soil profiles along a vegetation gradient. Sample locations included different forest types as well as sites under agricultural use. It is highlighted that : PyC concentrations did not change consistently with soil depth; Lower PyC stocks were observed at sites with higher mean annual temperature (MAT) and lower mean annual precipitation (MAP). PyC was only moderately related to non-PyC soil organic carbon (SOC), which comprises plant residues, their decomposition products and soil biota, suggesting largely independent processes influencing production and disappearance
