Abstract: Carbon storage in vegetation represents an important reservoir within the global carbon cycle, and changes in carbon uptake by and storage within vegetation and their soils can have significant impact on the global carbon balance. Vegetation biomass density (Mg dry weight per hectare) is used to estimate the amount of carbon stored in vegetation an ... [more]
