Abstract

Many studies report  asymmetrical  spatial distribution  of soil respiration caused by presence of areas with significantly higher emission rates (so-called hot spots). For seasonally dry tropical  forest soil respiration  was measured on 1 ha plot with 20m, 5m and 1 m scale in the first half of dry season. 457 measurements made in 9 series at 54 sampling points. The results suggest  that lognormal  spatial distribution  model appears to be much more supported  rather than the normal one. A statistical method  proposed for estimation the mean value and its confidence  interval of lognormally distributed data. The mean emission rate E(RS) for the lognormal distribution amounted  to 4.28 µmol m-2 s-1, the 95% confidence  interval is 3.93 to 4.76 µmol m-2 s-1. However, the standard sample mean can be used as an estimator of the mean of lognormally distributed values of soil respiration  if their coefficient  of variance remains approximately the same as in our study (CV=0.35).  Based on the data obtained and literature  sources,  recommendations  are given on the number of sampling  points for estimating the spatial average value with a given accuracy.
