Table 1 Importance of fuel types and mean forest floor C for the Quebec boreal ecozones (Amiro et al. 2009). Forest floor C stocks were calculated assuming 50% C in organic matter.

From: Impact of Climate Change on Forest Fire Severity and Consequences for Carbon Stocks in Boreal Forest Stands of Quebec, Canada: a Synthesis
