Estimation of total carbon stockpile and sequestration rates in degraded and non-degraded sites of Oak and Pine forests of Kumaun central Himalaya

Additional image:: 

Rates at which CO2 is being sequestered in two different forest types of Himalaya was computed. For comparative study degraded and non-degraded sites of pine and oak forests in Kumaun Central Himalaya were selected. The Van Panchayats (VPs) or community forests are managing the non degraded forest sites for centuries.
