Short summary
To mitigate the harmful effects of global climate change, it is essential to completely understand the cycles of carbon. In this study, we found the iron oxides play an important role in regulating the accumulation of carbon in forest soil, and uncovered the governing factors for the spatial variability and characteristics of iron-bound organic carbon. Such information is important for predicting the turnover of carbon in global soils.
