The conclusion for the research was that the sterile soil had no effect on the photosynthesis. This is very important for places that have had a fire. If the sterile soil affected the photosynthesis of the trees they would never grow back. We also learned that bacteria and fungi does have an effect on the carbon output. This also shows us that 60% output is not just from tree. This also shows us that are research was successful is showing us the differences and the effects on soil respiration.
