REPORTS... CARBON SEQUESTRATION


Item #d94jul141

Carbon 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.


Item #d94jul142

Evaluating 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.


Item #d94jul143

Use of 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.
