My doctoral research at ICTA-UAB explores the soil carbon sequestration potential of abandoned agricultural lands at various geographic scales. Abandoned farmlands gradually transition towards grasslands, shrublands and forests, usually resulting in significant increases in above- and belowground carbon stocks. I am interested in how soil organic carbon stocks change over time following the cessation of agricultural practices to better understand what role abandoned lands can play for climate change mitigation when they are left to spontaneously “rewild”.
