Soils are the largest non-fossil terrestrial reservoir of organic carbon on Earth, and
tropical soils contain about one third of this pool (Beinroth et al., 1996). Tropical
sols have the potential to augment carbon sequestration by management strategies
that allows them to revert to their original organic carbon levels, thus mitigating global
