Spatial Biomass Variation, Biomass Dynamics and Species Diversity in Relation to Topographic Factors of Lower Tropical Montane Forest

Forest biomass and biomass dynamics were used in this study of forest structure and environmental assessment as one of the most important criteria in order to understand forest ecosystem status and forest equilibrium. This research approach evaluated the effects of topographic indices consisting of elevation, slope aspect, slope inclination and index of convexity (IC) on the live-tree, aboveground biomass (AGB), ...

Biomass Carbon Stocks of Pinus kesiya and Succession Trees in Pine Plantations at Boa Kaew Watershed Management Station, Chiang Mai

Biomass carbon stocks of Pinus kesiya and succession trees in 14-34 year-old pine plantations were studied at Boa Kaew watershed management station, Chiang Mai province. Totally sixty three sampling plots, 40 x 40 m2 in size (3 plots/age-class) were used. Stem diameter at 1.3 m above ground and height of all trees were measured. Forest biomass varied among plantations, 11,281-39,707 ... Read More »
