REPORTS... CARBON SEQUESTRATION
Fixation Through Forestation Activities (IBN Res. Rep. 93/4),
G.J. Naburrs, G.M.J. Mohren, 205 pp., 1993, NLG 25. (Make payment
in Dutch Guilders by giro transfer to postal acct. 948540 of the
DLO Inst. Forestry & Nature Res., POB 23, 6700 AA Wageningen,
Neth., with the report number.)
Calculates carbon storing capacity of a wide range of 16
global forest types. On the basis of the most important
criterion, long-term average stock of carbon in the biomass and
products, selectively logged evergreen lowland tropical
rainforest and Douglas fir stands in the Pacific northwest of the
U.S. sequester the largest amount of carbon.
the Carbon Sequestration Benefits of Sustainable Forestry
Projects in Developing Countries, P. Faeth, C. Court, R.
Livernash, 75 pp., Feb. 1994, $14.95 pbk. World Resour. Inst.,
1709 New York Ave. NW, Washington DC 20006 (202-638-6300).
Presents a unique method for testing and comparing the
carbon-offset potential of a broad range of forests, capable of
providing insights for policy makers, utility executives and
project planners. Applies the model to Mexico, Nepal, Panama,
Thailand and Guatemala.
Halophytes to Remove Carbon from the Atmosphere--Results of a
Demonstration Experiment (EPRI TR-103310), 72 pp., Jan. 1994,
$200 (nonmembers). Electric Power Res. Inst., POB 10412, Palo
Alto CA 94303.
Examined the feasibility of growing wild, salt-tolerant
plants. Laboratory and field studies (Sonora, Mexico) showed that
these plantations could offer an additional, significant sink for
atmospheric carbon, while providing valuable farm products in
areas where conventional agriculture cannot be sustained. These
plantations compare favorably with other options, such as tree
plantations, for carbon storage.
