Abstract: Vast stores of carbon are sequestered in the permafrost soils, peatlands and boreal forests of western North America. Dramatic increases in warming, permafrost thaw, fire severity and frequency, and other natural disturbances threaten to alter these Arctic-boreal ecosystems (ABEs) irreversibly, transforming the landscape and the ecosystem carbon ba ...
