 Abstract
Valuation of ecosystem services through organic carbon distribution and cycling in the Quercus mongolica forest at Mt. Worak national park were investigated from May 2012 through April 2013. The amount of carbon allocated to above and below ground biomass was 81.94 and 20.53 ton C/ha. Amount of organic carbon in litter layer was 6.49 ton C/ha. Amount of organic carbon within 50 soil depth was 141.23 ton C . Total amount of organic carbon in this Quercus mongolica forest was estimated to 250.19 ton C . The estimated amount of won in this Quercus mongolica forest in terms of total organic carbon was about 5.27 million won . The amount of carbon evolved through soil respiration was 7.31 ton C . The amount of carbon evolved through microbial respiration and root respiration was 3.58 and 3.73 ton C , respectively. The amount of organic carbon absorbed from the atmosphere of this Quercus mongolica forest was 1.61 ton C when estimated from the difference between net primary production and microbial respiration. This amount will come to about 33,000 won in Korean currency.
