Summary, in English

The comparison of net ecosystem production at mature and disturbed forest sites were compared for 2001 and 2002. The distributed and mature boreal forest sites during the growing season have shown that even very young stands old can be strong day-time carbon sinks and even modest to strong daily sinks. The vegetation mosaic dictates that there were few stands of sufficient fetch for eddy covariance measurements from towers. The expansion of flux measurement sites to include forests of various gases is key to estimate net biome production in the boreal forest.
