Carbon Stock in Slash and Burn and Alternative Land Uses at ASB Benchmark Sites in the Humid Tropics
Entry ID: CGIAR_ASB_CStock

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Carbon stocks were measured in the soils and vegetation in 94 sites in the
three ASB benchmark countries (Brazil, Cameroon, Indonesia) and in an
additional 22 sites in Per??. The sites sampled in each country included
undisturbed or selectively logged forests as the reference point; areas that
had been recently slashed, burned, and cropped; and areas that were
subsequently planted to pastures, ... View entire text

Quality The current dataset allows for general comparison of C stocks and time-averaged
C values among general land-use types, but some caution must be taken in using
these estimates. There are several steps in which errors may affect the
accuracy of the estimates. These include small plot sizes for estimating the
biomass of large trees, insufficient ... View entire text
