Abstract

Three components of carbon allocation, biomass, flux, and partitioning, were measured in two contrasting Amazon forests growing under similar climatic conditions. Allocation to aboveground compartments was highest in a high-stature forest growing on clay soils, while allocation to fine roots was higher in a short-stature forest growing on white sands. Differences in carbon allocation components where not proportional between the two forests, with soils controlling a trade-off between allocation to fine roots versus aboveground parts.
