Short summary
Fire occurrence in the Peruvian montane grasslands has increased due to climate change and agricultural expansion. This study aimed to investigate how anthropogenic activities affect soil carbon stocks in this ecosystem. Burn history (burnt 10 years ago) and grazing appeared to cause no significant change in total soil carbon, but there were significant losses to the labile carbon, suggesting a change in the soil carbon dynamics – findings that are relevant for future environmental policymakers.
