Soil carbon stocks in UK grasslands. A brief review.

This is a summary of a literature review we did last year to add to the debate about grasslands and their wider value. Grassland carbon stocks are considerable, but are likely to vary depending on the type of grassland. A small pilot study that we did suggests that actually, floodplain meadow grasslands have much higher carbon stored than the figures quoted for neutral grasslands more generally, but we need to follow this up with more in-depth study. Anyone fancy funding it?
