Abstract: As a consequence of a global climate warming, extended dry and hot periods are predicted, which favor vegetation fires and the production of charcoal. Incorporated into the soil, this material is considered as highly recalcitrant and to increase the soil C sink. Recent laboratory experiments indicated that under optimal conditions, plant-derived pyrogenic organic matter (PyOM) can exhibit very short residence times < 100 years.
