AbstractSustainable management practices can enhance the capacity and potential for soil carbon (C) sequestration, significantly contributing towards mitigating regional climate change. Here, we investigated how the microbial characteristics of a Pinus tabulaeformis plantation responded to different management practices to identify the role of microbial characteristics in influencing the stability of soil organic carbon (SOC). We chose a Pinus tabulaeformis plantation on the Loess Plateau where forest management practices had been conducted since 1999. Five forest management practices were implemented: two at the forest level (P. tabulaeformis with and without ground litter), and three using different vegetation restoration approaches after dear-cutting (P. tabulaeformis seedlings, abandoned grassland, and natural shrub regeneration). Microbial biomass, soil respiration, microbial community structure, microbial metabolic function, and soil oxidizable organic carbon (OC) fractions were evaluated. Forest management practices changed SOC stability by adjusting the microbial characteristics (e.g. soil microbial community diversity and microbial metabolic function diversity). The result of path analysis was that the direct path coefficient of microbial biomass on soil oxidizable OC fractions was the largest, which was 1,499. Path analysis and redundancy analysis showed that microbial biomass had the largest direct influence on soil oxidizable OC fractions. Compared with other forest management practices, natural shrub regeneration increased the nonlabile carbon fraction by increasing soil microbial characteristics, and contributed the most towards stabilizing SOC, which enhanced the stability of the soil ecosystem on the plateau. In conclusion, microbial biomass was the biggest influence factor of SOC stability. In contrast, the stability of SOC may be most stable in the area of natural shrub regeneration.
