Abstract: Land use is an important factor affecting soil organic carbon (SOC) dynamics and can produce positive C climate feedback, but its effects remain unknown for Tibetan ecosystems. Recent land use changes have converted the traditional winter Kobresia pastures of nomads in the northeastern Tibetan Plateau to Elymus pastures or even to cropland. Detailed SOC measurements up to 30-cm depth were combined with analysis of delta C-13, delta N-15, bulk density, microbial C, and N contents in three land use types. Bulk density was decreased by conversion from Kobresia pasture to cropland but increased by conversion to Elymus pasture. The loss of 1 % of SOC caused by land use change leads to delta C-13 increase of 0.8 aEuro degrees. Conversion to cropland significantly decreased SOC stocks (10 %) and microbial biomass C, but the C loss (1.6 %) was insignificant in Elymus pasture. Land use changes strongly increased soil delta N-15 in the top 5 cm. Conversion to Elymus pasture did not change the C stocks, but conversion to cropland decreased C stocks by 10 % within 10 years. Soil delta C-13 and delta N-15 data indicate acceleration of C and N cycling due to the replacement of Kobresia pasture by Elymus pasture and cropland.
