Carbon stocks in a tropical dry forest in Brazil

Abstract: -The dry forests are the type most widely distributed vegetation in the tropics, and studies aimed at quantifying the carbon stock in these forests are important for it to be quantified their participation as mitigating the effects of climate change. With that in mind, the aim of this research was to quantify the carbon stocks in the woody, herbaceous, litter and root components of a patch of dry tropical forest, with 30 years of regeneration in Iguatu-CE, Brazil. Initially the vegetation was inventoried by me… Show more

“…During the rainy months, from April to July 2013 and February 2014, the production of herbaceous dry biomass in the TC 5 was statistically higher than that seen in the RC 35 ). It can therefore be said that the TC 5 management expresses a greater sensitivity to the rainfall regime of the region.…”

“…The studies have shown that the concentration of fine roots throughout the soil profile in the TC 5 However, during the rainy period there was greater homogeneity in the concentration of fine roots along the vertical depth, with no significant difference (p > 0.05) ( Figure 5(b)). Although each type of vegetation has a different root architecture, use of the root to shoot ratio has been widely used to estimate the quantity of root biomass for the purposes of carbon accounting [20].…”
