By P. K. Ramachandran Nair (auth.), B. Mohan Kumar, P. K. Ramachandran Nair (eds.)

This multi-authored quantity includes peer-reviewed chapters from the world’s best researchers and pros during this subject. it's a compendium of unique examine articles, case experiences, and neighborhood overviews and summarizes the present nation of data on carbon sequestration strength of agroforestry platforms. the most speculation of the e-book is that the farmers because time immemorial have built-in an array of tree and crop species of their land use platforms as a way to accomplish greater productiveness, hazard avoidance, product diversification, and sustainability. those multispecies construction structures additionally effect the surroundings procedures favorably. but, our realizing of the range attributes and carbon dynamics lower than agroforestry isn't really enough. even though carbon sequestration is a focal subject matter of debate in so much agroforestry and weather meetings, guides on carbon sequestration in agroforestry are scattered. This booklet, with sixteen chapters prepared into 3 vast sections titled: size and Estimation, Agrobiodiversity and Tree administration, and coverage and Socioeconomic elements, symbolize a move component to the possibilities and demanding situations in present examine and rising matters in harnessing carbon sequestration strength of agroforestry platforms. The e-book is exclusive in its particular and worldwide assurance of the topic, and constitutes a necessary reference fabric for college kids and researchers within the box of agroforestry and weather switch mitigation.

Buffers of 91 m width have been proposed for levee protection and to stop flooding and other damages (Dwyer et al. 1997). The composition and the width of the riparian buffer system also vary and much wider buffers are required for the removal of soluble nutrients compared to stabilizing stream banks (Schultz et al. 2009). Multi-species riparian buffers could consist of fast and slow growing trees adjacent to the water body and shrubs and grasses between the trees and upland areas. Properly designed riparian buffers not only sequester C, but improve water quality, wildlife habitat, aesthetic value, economic returns, and land value (Qiu and Prato 2001; Schultz et al.

Using published data (n = 4), Schroeder (1994) estimated 63 Mg C ha–1 above-ground storage for temperate zone riparian buffers with a 30 year cutting cycle. Our mean estimate of 123 Mg C ha–1 is twice the value estimated by Schroeder (1994). According to Hoover and Heath (2011), above-ground C stock for forest stands could range from 74 to 106 Mg ha–1 with a mean of 90 Mg ha–1. Riparian areas are generally highly productive and therefore the value could be greater than for a typical forested site.
