Sequestration Dutch forests

In the context of the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol carbon changes in forests and forest soils are to be reported.

The Netherlands has stated not to report this because it is assumed that forest soils capture equity carbon, so that the amount of soil organic stuff and the amount of dead organic stuff in the Dutch forests is not decreasing. Before the new term a scientific basis should be given for this matter. Arguments that soil organic stuff and dead organic stuff in the Dutch forest does not decline could be made, based on literature study, supplemented with data.
